"Oh mom this is sooooo awesome! Can I get it please please please!
I'll be really good! Can I get it for my birthday or Christmas? Which
one comes first? Pleeeeease!"
My special way of warding off overly zealous little hoarders is to
take a picture of the thing they want, then they are appeased and I
have an idea for a future gift. Sarah wants a super messy volcano set
instead of a (clean) fluffy pink stuffed animal? Darn. Messes were
sure more fun when I was a kid and had a mother to clean it up.
