Will was going to ask Santa for 2 things: a school bus and a frisbee. Will had a school bus and it broke, and we lost his frisbee about 6 months ago. This was going to be the easiest Santa shopping ever - and he was going to be thrilled.
I immediately ordered a school bus from Amazon, and I was just going to grab a frisbee at the toy store before Christmas.
We get a ton of Amazon boxes at this house. Forgetting what could be in the box, I opened the school bus almost in front of him. I quickly hid it behind some things so he couldn't see it.
And then I forgot about it.
A few days later, Will found it! He was so thrilled that he had a new school bus! I was so bummed that I forgot to hide it - it was going to be such a fun thing for him to open on Christmas. Oh well, at least I had the frisbee.
Then on Saturday, he found the missing frisbee! It had been hiding behind a plant in our room for no less than 6 months. He was thrilled to find it! I was a little less excited.
So I asked Will what he would ask Santa to bring him for Christmas now that he had a new school bus and since he found his frisbee. His answer - "a reindeer!"
