Wishful Thinking

Counting the days until my three-year-old birthday....

Dear Son studies toy magazines at great length for long periods of time. Every so often he pipes up with an exclamation of, "Look!" followed by, "Can I have (fill in the blank) for my present? PLEASE? Can I?"

Needless to say, there is just shy of FIVE MONTHS left until his birthday, and his list is getting quite long already.

Classic. It's a sweet bit of a story and a lovely picture.

I'm really touched by this post.

He is a child after my own heart! I would still make a list if I could get away with it!!

It doesn't change as they grow older, either. In fact, I think it gets worse!

My Dear Son, age 6 11/12 years, pours over his Lego catalogs and magazines for hours and hours, memorizing every page. He's even taken to bribing my Dear Daughter, 4 1/2 years, to give him her points so they can "both get a new Lego set."

But I also must admit, how I love to look through the countless mailorder catalogs we get and make a wish list in my mind...

That is adorable. Reminds me of when I was a kid and the Sears Wishbook would arrive.

My kids actually have more fun looking at the mailings for Halloween Costumes.
