Nicole and I have tried every angle to figure out what kind of oval Addie is talking about. Nicole asked her where she saw the oval . . at daddy’s work. Great. Walmart. That should make it easy to find. Nicole took her to Walmart and they spent hours walking up and down the toy aisles. Addie was one distracted little girl! She wanted . . or rather NEEDED . . everything she saw and soon forgot about finding an oval.
Nicole asked her what color is the oval you want? Blue. That would help except Addie refuses to learn her colors.
I asked her . . what do you do withe oval? Play with it. Well, that narrows it down.
Thanks to Claudia who mentioned Osmo. That looks really cool. Nicole showed it to Addie and she promptly declared that she NEEDS that but no, that is not the oval she’s wanting.
What we now know is that it may or may not be blue. She saw it at Walmart and it’s something to play with.
A few days later, Nicole drew a big oval and was hoping that they could start with that and get more info from Addie. Nicole showed it to her and Addie said “Thanks! That’s what I wanted!”
I feel there’s more to this. She said she saw it at daddy’s work. Was it a big oval on a sign? Was it a toy or something else she saw?
I’ve so loved your comments and things your children or grandchildren asked for from Santa . . a dime, a sandwich, the child who asked for a cake, a mirror and a reindeer! Kids really do say the funniest things.
