Every year in November, I sit my kids down with paper and pencil and ask them to create for me a wish list of what they want for Christmas. I started doing this because I can remember growing up with my mom getting me what she wanted me to have. While I was appreciative of those gifts, they never meant as much as the ones that I had begged for all year long. So — I make sure my children create their own wish list so that I can try my best to get a few things for them that they have really been wanting all year.
So, what do my kids want for Christmas this year?
My son is almost 18, so there are no toys on his list. In fact, he really only wants a few things:
He is really wanting his own netbook. We found this great bargain at Walmart.com! It’s on rollback for $228 (and I am sure by Black Friday it will be even cheaper.) Since he will be 18, I figure this is definitely something I can get for him.
His other items on his wish list are basics any parent gets for her child: clothes, cologne, X-Box live membership, Microsoft points (yes –he’s a gamer)
Now, my daughter on the other hand — she is my hard one to buy for. I ask her what she wants, and she says she doesn’t care. She’s really into photography right now, so I am thinking frames, a new camera, tripod, and all the little things a newbie photographer would love to have!
What about you? What do YOUR kids want for Christmas?
