Who would have known???

We live in a house full of toys. When you have 3 boys the same age and a lot of generous family and friends, you end up with every boy toy imaginable. Charlie even makes out better than his big brothers. He gets all of their hand-me-downs AND a fresh supply of new toys for Christmas and his birthday. He has so much stuff to play with, it is unreal.

It has always struck me how random their "favorite" toys are. They are never the toys that *I* was convinced they were going to love. It is never consistent with the "toy awards" in magazine and more money does not equal a more loved toy...it just seems to be random. To me anyway.

Currently, these are Charlie's favorite toys. His "doggie car" and his "nice hat". He drags them upstairs, downstairs and into the basement. I drew the line when he wanted to bring them in the car the other day. Ok, I let him bring the hat, but the doggie car had to stay home. He plays with them all the time!
So, if you ask me what Charlie wants for his next birthday and I get a dumb look on my face...this is why. I have no idea. Your guess is as good as mine. :)

Thank you, Cathy! I was totally thinking, "how did Charlie grow up so fast?"

I know exactly what you are talking about, I never have an idea on what to get kids and never know what to say when people ask what to get my own! Claire loves babies now and has about 8 (all were Rachel's), guess what she got for her birthday more baby dolls and she loves them all!
