Gift for Baby
My niece had a baby boy in October and we were invited to see everyone at my brother and sister-in-law's house. I had already decided to give them a gift card along with an ornament but decided to ask the kids what we should get the baby. We were all in the car...
Me: "What should we get the baby?"
12 year old: "Clothes or a pacifier."
6 year old "A toy!"
Dad: "Well we are going to Sears, how about a chainsaw?"
Kids together, "Nooooooooo!"
6 year old, "That is too loud and too dangerous for the baby."
Me "I know, a riding lawn mower... after all it is a boy!"
6 year old "Mom, the baby does not know how to drive yet!"
Me "How about a microwave or a dishwasher?"
Dad, "An ax! Surely the baby would love an ax"
6 year old, "No, dad, that is a bad idea."
Dad, "Ok, I got it...a lighter to light the fireplace!"
6 year old, "Dad, a lighter is too dangerous and the baby does not know how to 'Stop, Drop, and Roll' yet!"
He is right, he has not rolled over yet, maybe for Christmas!
