This morning I asked Kid #3, "So what do you want for your birthday?"
Thoughtful look. "I'd like an excavator."
"Oh. Okay. What else?"
"A fire truck."
"A trash truck."
"I think I'm seeing a pattern here," I said. "Anything you'd like that isn't a vehicle or a machine?"
He thought about it long and hard. Finally his face lit up.
"A police car," he said at last.
Not a lot of variety there. On the up side, I'll only have to walk down one aisle in Toys R Us to buy him everything he wants!
