As we approach my son's third birthday next week, I've been asked by several relatives for ideas to help them navigate the overwhelming ocean of toys made for 3-yr old boys! So, last night I employed the assistance of my husband to make a "Top Ten" list of his wishes.
At first, we were a little self-serving (new sheets for his bedroom would be helpful for mommy; a tennis racquet would be fun for daddy; size 9 shoes for a pair of feet that won't stop growing, etc.). Then, we moved along to "cool" toys, like the stuff we never got when we were kids (pretty much any kind of motorized vehicle). Eventually, we really got down to the nitty-gritty of our son's absolutely favorite things. So, here it is...
Drew's Top Ten List of Birthday Wishes:
10. Box of frozen waffles
8. Cherry Birthday Cake (we don't know why Cherry or if he's ever seen or tasted this flavor before...but he's pretty set on it)
7. Max & Ruby DVD (only one, please, so he can watch it over and over and over and over and...)
6. Root Beer
5. Tennis Balls
4. Bouncy Balls (the kind you get from the gumball machine at the mall)
1. A scooter
So, for about $12 (excluding the scooter), all our son's 3-yr old wishes can come true. What a great place to be in life!
