Whenever we'd go to the store around birthdays or the holidays (which is one and the same for Sawyer), and the kids would ask for a toy, I'd tell them to put it on their list. So they'd go home and make one.
They'd devour the catologues from ToysRUs, Target and whatever I'd get in the mail. They'd circle what they wanted - which was pretty much everything. And when I'd say that I was pretty confident they WOULDN'T be getting the the $750 Lego set that builds a life-sized tank, they'd reply they were SURE Santa would bring it.
Even now when I don't want to have to explain why I'm not buying them something, I'll suggest they put it on their list.
Which led to this conversation with Sage this morning. It totally cracked me up. Because a child's frame of reference is so specific, you know?
"Mommy? Can I have waffles for breakfast?"
"Oh, no, I'm sorry, we don't have any."
"We forgot to buy them. I'll put them on my list."
"Mommy? Why is Santa bringing us food?"
