William has been hard at work on his Christmas list. He's spent hours pouring over the catalogs that have come in the mail as well as the ads in the newspaper.
He's circled the things he would like, and written his initial by them. Now that he's learning to read and write, he's also been painstakingly writing his list up. It's up to two pages now.
This dear boy wants every Nerf gun, race track, and marble run known to exist on the planet. He'd also like the domino set that we already have in the playroom downstairs. We took it away because he refused to ever help pick them up.
He'd like the the Great Big Outdoor Play Ball and the Blue Bird Musical Tower and a zip line.
He'd also like the Habitadule, the Cool 4-in-1 Tool, and he'd REALLY REALLY REALLY like the Mega Marble Mania - this is at the very top of his list.
And he doesn't just look for himself - he circles things for Sarah and Jason too - William thinks Jason would enjoy the Push/Pull Dogs and that Sarah would like this Castle from Walmart.
He's a very very thoughtful boy who is SO good with Sarah and Jason, I can't even tell you - when they're all getting along they have so much fun with William! and he's really trying hard, in some ways, to be good - and mostly succeeding. And then there are the times you'll send him upstairs to shower & find him, 15 minutes later, standing in his room with his pants around his ankles rearranging the stickers on his wall. Go figure.
