What Every Four Year Old Wants for His Birthday...

We had a birthday party to attend today for a boy we really don't know that well. To be truthful, I had forgotten all about it. What? So I don't find every four year old's birthday as thrilling as my own child's? Sue me. I didn't RSVP, but lucky me, they live right next door...so they can see that my car is home and called to remind me. Anyway, we made a mad dash out to Walmart this morning, because even though I have a gift closet full of four-year-old-appropriate birthday items, Lucas was positive the kid wanted a hand mixer for his birthday. (Rest easy folks...I didn't buy the kid a hand mixer.) (Although it would have been hilarious to me to watch him open it.) It's hard explaining to a little kid that not all children are forced to cook three meals a day for their mother love to work in the kitchen.

A hand mixer sounds like a fine gift for a budding chef! I love these stories. Keep 'em coming!
