Does anyone else remember the Sears Wish Book?? It used to arrive in the mail around the beginning of November. My girls would pour over it for hours and hours..... eldest daughter used to circle everything she wanted in preparation for her letter to Santa.
Our lil one doesn't really watch any TV - and certainly not commercial TV (usually movies on the Disney Channel when we do watch TV with her) AND of course no Sear's Wish book! This lack of exposure to the commercial side of Christmas has it's pro's and con's. Writing a letter to Santa has been difficult to put it mildly. She had NO idea what she wanted for Christmas!! No idea what the newest "must have" toys were. Remember the cabbage doll craze?? I do - we had a helluva time getting them for each of our girls!!
You'd think that would make Christmas a whole lot less stressful. You'd be wrong! cause how do you buy a lil one the BEST present EVER! if you don't know what the BEST present EVER is for her??!!
Yesterday a catalogue arrived in the mail......... a CHRISTMAS TOY catalogue from Amazon!! I was SO excited! you'd think I was the kid!!
and better than the Sear's catalogue - this one comes with activity pages and stickers and a place to write your list!!
Here's to updated Christmas traditions.
