Will's Christmas List for Santa

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!" 

Oh dear.

  1. Oh! This made me laugh. I'm sure you'll have no problem finding a reindeer! :) Actually, we have a stuffed one from Pottery Barn Kids from a few years ago - maybe they still have them? Good luck!
