What He Doesn’t Know…

“Ooh, I want that. I NEED this. Daddy, how can I fit this roller coaster in my room?”

Remind us not to let Jake look at the “magazines” (aka monster toy catalogs) that come in the newspaper and mail this time of year. It’s a “wish book” alright. I wish he’d never seen them because he’s driving me bonkers.

“Mommy, can I tell you something?”

“Sure, honey.”

“I really need those Buzz Lightyear wings from my magazine.”


I flipped through the glossy pages myself. I wish they made some of this stuff when I was a kid! No fair!

Now that I think about it, I did have one toy he’d envy.

Please don’t tell him, the Buzz Lightyear wings sound almost reasonable in comparison.

      I was the first baby the family had seen in years, on either side. Needless to say I was a bit spoiled. Then my sister was born, cousins started being born and it all came to a crashing halt. ;)

    Aww, how fun! When I was little I had an inflatable spaceship that you could sit inside which I thought was just the coolest thing ever.
