Youngest Nephew turned three yesterday and no matter how many times I asked him what he wanted for his birthday, all he told me was “a cake”. First it was a white cake,
then it was a green cake.
I have this theory about kids, give them what they want now (if they’re not your kids) because you can’t afford what they want in just a few years. For now, Youngest Nephew is happy with a Chinese-made, battery operated helicopter with lights, moving rotors, and sounds. Cheap. His older brother is happy with a real flashlight, “like a security guard’s” and a step trashcan – I got him both for his birthday last September. He was happy.
