Me: "What do you want for your birthday?"
Me: "Well, do you want a toy or how about some new books?"
Anders with a huge grin, "Lots of new books!"
Then Anders again later, "For my birthday I want lots of books and toys!"
Me: "Okay, what toy?"
Anders: "New toys!"
An almost three-year-old is zero help in trying to come up with birthday gift ideas. At least I know he will be happy with some new books.
