For Christmas, Addie wants:
- A firetruck
- A book about penguins
- An oval
What the heck is she talking about . . an oval?
I found a cute firetruck puzzle at Amazon, though I’m quite sure that is not what she had in mind. Chad got an electric fire truck . . the kind with the rechargeable battery that you ride in and drive, when he was 2. Maybe shee’s seen pictures of that and she’s expecting one . . not from Granny I hope! Chad was 3 and we had moved to a small town in Texas. The Burger King wasn’t far from our house and during their off hours, we would walk along while Chad drove through the drive through. The workers came to expect him every day . . riding his fire truck through the drive through.
Finding books about penguins was easy. I saw a puzzle with shapes and it had an oval but it was for a younger child. I have no idea if she’s seen something and is calling it the wrong thing or, if when they were studying shapes in pre-school, the oval just made a big impression on her.
Any thoughts about an oval as a gift for a 3 year old?
