This Christmas is going to be so fun. Kellan really gets the concept of Santa this year, and this is the first year that he’s asking for specific gifts from the big man. He is so thrilled, which makes me feel giddy too!
But there’s one leeeeetle issue. Kellan’s Christmas list. He’s not asking for a lot, but the two things he wants are real doozies, in my opinion:
- Drum set
- Big animals
I’m just going to be honest. Those are about the last two things on this earth that I want Santa to deliver. Okay, first of all? A drum set? Are you kidding me? One word: LOUD.
As for the big animals…you’re probably wondering what the heck that means. I was too, until Kellan explained a little bit. He wants large stuffed animals like the giraffe and cheetah at his pediatrician’s office. Those, of course, are not loud — which is great — but they are BIG. That poses two problems. One, where the heck am I going to keep big animals? Just another thing to shove into an overpacked closet I guess…. And two, cost. Last time I checked, those things were like $100-$200 apiece, right? Sigh. I hope Costco is stocking something large and furry this year.
But the drum set! HEAVEN HELP ME….MY BOY IS NOT EVEN THREE AND HE WANTS A DRUM SET. Santa, if you’re reading this, the number one thing on my wish list this year is a basement. Oh, and lots of soundproofing material. As much as you’ve got. And some earplugs would be nice too. Thanks.
