Then, they won't be disappointed if they don't get the exact thing they asked for! The most important thing for us this year is creating a budget and sticking to it. We went a little overboard the last two years. But, our "old" budgets might not be practical any more. Three years ago, I tried to say, "Let's only spend $40 each on the kids." Now, as they're getting older, that $40 doesn't seem to buy much. So, what is on my kids' lists?
For Logan, he could never have enough building bricks. We already have 3 of those long under-bed bins filled to the top. But, ask him what he wants and he says, "LEGO"s. Which of course is his generic term for any kind of building brick set. Funny story about saying "LEGOs" . . . My hubby and the kids went to the LEGO store the other day. He told me last night, that apparently, the LEGO company does not like for multiple bricks to be called LEGOs. The proper term is LEGO building bricks. I think it's funny that someone in the store would have corrected them. Okay, we've been told! But still, that's what Logan wants and how he'll ask for them. Here he is with one of his many sets from last year.
