Softer Side

Sunday, August 26, 2012

Wip had an agenda today.  

Step 1.  Go to Auntie's to help her with the pack n play
Step 2.  Talk to Santa on the phone (thank you Granddaddy for making this possible)
Step 3.  Find animals for a carousel
Step 4. Get lunch at Chick-fil-a (of course is closed on Sunday)
Step 5. Watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and then quiet time while Duncan sleeps
Step 6. Go to Mimi and Granddaddy's for dinner

He probably repeated this agenda 20 times today making it clear to me that my son likes a routine.  He thrives when he knows what the "next" will be.  

Which leads me to the point of this post.  Wip's Christmas List. I have no idea where this came from but he is obsessed with telling me what he wants to tell Santa his "wants" for Christmas...have the decorations gone up already and I am oblivious?  

Wip has plenty of dinosaurs, clothes, trains (really he has plenty of everything).  He does love his animals which is why I am trying to create a copy of his dinosaur cave (which he plays with all of the time).  Soft animals rather than those hard-big-obnoxious "boy" toys. 

The post-it note taking as he "talked" through what he wanted
We talked at length about what he would like for Santa to bring him (only if he was a good boy, of course).  Here is what he came up with:

1.  A Woody doll (like Caroline's)

2.  A Buzz doll (like the one in Duncan's classroom)

3. Farm animals from Bla Bla Dolls (these are the one's he picked out...he really went back and forth between farm and zoo, it was cracking me up).






4.  Finally, he wants a companion for his Mr. Potato Head.  He informed me that there is a Mrs. and she would like to keep his Mr. Potato Head company.

*Please note that this is August and this list could change a million times between now and Christmas

Wait...Patrick Mulloy's son likes an agenda? Never would have guessed.
