Yesterday I was talking with two mothers with children in Timothy's class. Mind you, that would be KINDERGARTEN.
So, we were talking about Christmas, and what Santa was bringing.
One mom: Johnny wants an ipod shuffle.
Huh???? My son wouldn't know an ipod shuffle if it bonked him on the head.
The other mom: We're probably getting Betty a laptop...you know, one of those notebooks for $200. She's really been wanting one.
Huh?!?!?!?! While my son likes to visit northpole.com and play Diego's African Safari, he does so on the family computer (which, I might add, is in full view for supervisory purposes).
There was a pause as both moms looked at me expectantly.
Me: Uhm, er, my son wants a fire truck.
And that's exactly what he's going to get...the perfect Christmas toy for an innocent little boy.
