Tonight is the rare occurance where we actually have guests over after dinner time so i’m going to make this short.
For Holden’s birthday, i’ve told him many times that he can choose whatever he wants. I don’t think he’s ever understood that concept fully. He’s always insisted on ONE toy and one toy only. “Dr. Mater”
Well, we found Dr. Mater.. and no way is a $3.50 toy going to be the only thing we get him for his birthday. It’d be nice.. but it would be wrong. He deserves more than that.
So today during an outing with just Holden and I to get some quality alone time in together, I finally pounded it into his head that he can choose as MANY things as he wants for his birthday. He might not GET them all (which I didn’t tell him), but he can choose a bunch of things.
So now the list has expanded, and i’m writing it down here so that I don’t forget.
1. Dr. Mater
2. A new bed with a Cars blanket
3. Nitro-ade Hauler
4. Dragon Lightning McQueen (the big one that talks and lights up)
And that’s it so far! I have more ideas for him, though i’m sure he’ll come up with some more on his own in the next few months.
Leftovers are great for 2 things: Easy, quick dinners, and getting to hear your kids complain about the same meal twice in a week!
@anninabyrne He mentioned something about penis trampolines. I don't even know.
My 10 yo didn't know that Dick is short for Richard so he's spent the past 10 yrs thinking Dick's Sporting Goods is a store for penis sports
8yo told me that Oct 31st is "national knock-knock joke day"- which means Halloween will henceforth be known as "The Most Annoying Day Ever"
@SassyPsychDoc "It seemed like a good idea at the time"
@SassyPsychDoc I fact-checked him myself. Someone was seriously sleeping on the job that day
Thought my 8yo was lying when he said that a male woodchuck is a he-chuck & a female is a she-chuck.Nope. If I have to know that, so do you!
Sometimes advice from our kids is EXACTLY what we need to hear. Been a rough few months & what my 8yo said hit home holdinholden.com/2017/10/winn…
10yo: What is calculus? Me: It's you + me = us Husband: get out. #oldpeoplejokes
