I aksed my kids what they wanted for christmas this year, and they really couldn't tell me. So I handed them a toy magazine and told them to look through it, and start on their lists for Santa.
Kali: So Soft Pony. The ORANGE one, with the PURPLE hair. (Of course this was hard to find.) Littlest Pet Shop Armadillo. VIP Lady Bug. Webkinz-Zebra
Abbi: Books, Nintendo DS games, Littlest Pet Shop Day Planner-GREEN, Webkinz-Frog or Hippo
Baylee? I don't even have the slightest idea yet. We've decided that Santa will go to her house in Vegas, and we'll just give presents from Mom and Dad here....especially since we won't have her until the second half of Christmas break.
Kaleb: Hot Wheels Dinosaur, Goosebumps books, Star Wars figures, Webkinz-Polar Bear and Snake AND Bat.
All of the kids lists were 1/2 a page. When I finished my hair appointment, Kaleb's list magically appeared much much bigger.
So here's my gripe. The kids are wanting specific colors. Then, it's not just a Webkinz, it's a specific animal. What is Santa going to do if she...I mean he....can't find the exact item? I got online first to see how popular these items were. Yeah..of course they are the popular items. So I went shopping last night with Ang. We hit Target and Walmart. I would much rather pay full price for an item, and have it, then go to a sale, and HOPE that I get it.
The good news....I found MOST of what I was looking for. The bad news....The entire store knew "I FOUND THE ARMADILLO! ANG!!! I FOUND IT!"
NOTE TO SELF: Get a Christmas list earlier, and shop the beginning of November.
7/22/09 We were at the store and I pointed out a bedspread that I liked. Kaleb says, "Mom, that's Goth." I giggled and said asked him what he thought Goth was. He told me that "Goth means you like black."
3/30/2009 We were at Target and Kali saw a new bobble head, "Mom, I want the "cowpitter". Which is catapillar in Kali-nese.
1/15/2009 Kaleb says, "Mom, is that toy gonna come out of my paycheck?"
12/22/2008 Abbi "Hey, it's the Eve, of the Eve, of Christmas Eve!"
12/19/2008 Kaleb asked "Mom, is coloring an exercise for your hand?"
12/15/2008 Kali says, "Ooops mom...sorry it was an ACCI-DIDN'T." The funniest part, is that she's been saying that for about 3 years. I finally had to tell her that the word is ACCIDENT.
11/2/2008 Kaleb was working on his spelling words. I told him to spell 'we'. He says, "W-i-i."
I was making dinner, when Abbi says, "Mom, I need a fork," and Kaleb says, "Mom, can you get me a cup?" and Kali says, "guys, she's not an octopus!" 10/19/2008
When Kaleb was about 2, I was ordering at Sonic, and I ordered grill cheese sandwich's for the kids. Kaleb began crying, and I asked him what was wrong. He told me, "I don't want it girl cheese, I want it boy cheese!"
This lady in front of me was driving terribly. I kept saying "Lady!" Well, I finally gunned the car to go, and the drinks from McDonalds, spilled all over the car. Kali says, "Her tripped us!" Kali was 4 years old.
When Kali was 3, she found a pair of her shorts in her drawer. She put them on. It was still winter, so I told her she had to wear pants. Kali said, "I am. Little pants mom."
