I've heard people say not to give your kid everything he wants, but no one's ever told me not to get my kid everything I think he should have or want! In the past few days Warren has received several new toys, including a vacuum cleaner that actually makes noise, a laptop, a work bench with noise making tools, puzzles, a light up spinner, and a Disney Cars chair!!... Oh, and a pool!!!
We were setting up the pool to test it out, and Warren and Cleo wanted in, so we let them. They loved it! Warren just laughed at Cleo walking round and round in the pool slurping up water.
While at Toys R Us today, we saw this chair. I put it down so Warren could see it, and he got right up in it and played for about ten minutes. I kept bringing him different (cheaper!) chairs to try, but he wouldn't even acknowledge there was another chair in sight! He loved this one. It's really sturdy, so hopefully it will last many years. It took a little bit to sweet talk daddy into getting it, but eventually he looked at me and said, "If you ask it of me, I will give you the one ring"! LOL (That's a line from Lord of the Rings, for those who don't know.) I am not sure who was more excited, Warren or me!!!!
Warren got right in it once we brought it home and daddy got the feet on. He loves to just get up and down and up and down.
This toy reminds me of my daddy with all his little gadget-type toys. It has this spinner with lights and when you hold down the button, it spins and makes light patterns. Warren quickly figured out how to push the button to make it work (notice the concentration in his face), and he played with it nearly the whole time we were grocery shopping today, so I thought he should have it. He still liked it after we got home, so I guess that means he truly likes it.
Last weekend we were at some friends' house, and their son had one of these vacuum cleaners. It makes noise and has a little dust buster in the middle that comes out, and it really works! Warren loved it, so we thought he needed to have his own. Cleo doesn't like it at all (she is scared of vacuum cleaners), and Warren thinks that's funny.
So about $100 later, and I think our kiddo has enough for now... It's so fun being a parent!!!!
BTW - we go in on Monday at 7am for Warren to get tubes in his ears. Also, we gave our two weeks notice to his daycare, so he will not be in daycare over the summer but will start at Parkview in August.
