I just walked by the table and saw this list on it. Newsflash: we have definitely entered into a new era. Since when did one my kids request a desk chair with wheels, an iPod, and new earrings for gifts?
Oh, since we entered the Tween stage. Note to self: No more toys for Maddie.

I just think it’s awesome she spelled “organisers” the British way. That, to me, is very cool.
Are we talking goldfish crackers? Swedish fish? Or a tank with living critters? And yes, that is definitely the list of an older girl, though I would say that she still wants toys, just grown-up ones (iPod, camera, etc.).
i think it’s great that she told you what size shoe to buy. love it.
This is hilarious. And fun.
A few thoughts:
~Was “organisers” British or just mis-spelled?
~The shoe size thing is too much.
~Maybe she meant “Phish” and has found the band she wants to follow as you and Craig follow U2…
~What sort of “funky” pens does she mean? (That could be a good cerce from out-of-town friends…)
My eldest is turning 10 in a couple weeks, and we’re already seeing The Change. This year she wants: fashionable boots (preferably from Justice), skinny jeans, a long sweater, a Nintendo DS, and Taylor Swift CDs. Too bad I already bought her Kit’s American Girl bed. I’m just not ready to give up the childhood years yet.
Last year was the first year my DD (10 at the time) got no toys for Christmas. I was very tempted to buy her some Littlest Pet Shop stuff just for nostalgia purposes, but resisted. 🙂 It’s a whole new world, but a pretty fun one. Enjoy!
she must be distantly related to tara b. remember all her stories about wanting office supplies as a child? always make me laugh:)
ah yes, but her requests for storage boxes and chapstick remind us she’s still 10!! Enjoy it while you can! 🙂
