I thought about doing some potential early Christmas shopping today, but as I asked my little ones which presents they “in theory” (if Mom happened to be Santa) would want, they were as indecisive as I typically am.
Actually my youngest wants just about every potential kid-friendly infomercial product…recently the little shaker cups that “turn any drink into a slushy“, and the cake popsicle things. Oh yeah, she even suggested the doggie steps…although our dog can currently jump on the counter from a seated position.
My point is, why even think about Christmas presents, birthday presents, or any other gift when each week something as pivotal to daily living as cakes on popsicle sticks, will appear on a commercial and make whatever you thoughtfully bought in advance seem like yesterday’s news?
To be honest, I don’t know how Santa does it, but (don’t turn me in to child protective services) I am thinking about leaving the Christmas shopping up to him this year. Seriously. My kids are about old enough to have that whole “Santa is more of a giving mentality that didn’t happen this year” conversation anyway.
