What Does a Soon-to-be 7 Year Old Want?

For his birthday, that is...

Star Wars Episodes 1-6, of course. Ah, autism.

I need a quick escape route when Jason gets home.... I am going to be living in Star Wars crazy land as soon as it is delivered.

Oh and I have a second bone to pick with W-Mart. I shouldn't think about convenience when it comes to this store--anymore. I ordered Christmas online this year and Milan's big present, a super deluxe, all the whistles and bells, dollhouse came today.

In it's original box. Picture plastered on the front.

And the kiddos answered the door to the UPS guy because I was still in my bathrobe.

So guess who got to play with it immediately because 'mom got it on clearance and ordered it even though her birthday is in March'. (It so wasn't and it was most definitely for Christmas, but I am a fast thinker and the kids know I am super frugal...normally.)

This happened to me yesterday...only it was my fault :) LOL

I got a package from UPS (forgetting I ordered it from WM on Black Friday...

I was all excited & opened one right in front of them! Thankfully they didn't notice, since it's no big deal for us to get pkgs....

sigh

I so feel your pain on the Star Wars we have had the set for a couple of years now. John got it for Christmas. He is just know starting to watch other movies again. That really sucks about the package, but good thinking on your part.

Augh! I feel your Wal-Mart pain! I just wrote a post on my love/hate relationship with them this week. Great deals - not so great "other" things :-)

Hey, at least you got it for a great price!

Sounds like the books I ordered for my son for Christmas. He recognized the box and new what was in them and that they were for him. At least he only knows that they are books and not what the books specifically are.
