The problem is that instead of adding things each day, I keep taking things OFF the list.
I hate having too much stuff around. Also, Des doesn't need too much stuff. Living simply is one of the concepts I hope to instill in him. It will help him to become more imaginative with what we have. As it is, he's perfectly content to play with an empty box. Or a few tupperware lids. Or a broom.
Seriously, he played with the broom for like 45 minutes that day.
So his wish list has been pared down to books, puzzles, a few movies, and a couple of outdoor play items. Oh, and this of course:
Start 'em early!
But honestly, I think if we wrapped the toys he already owns and loves in spankin' new cardboard boxes, he'd be psyched.
Neely might enjoy it also.
