Nate's birthday wish list

Yep, it's that time of year again. Nater-tater is turning eight in November. As you can imagine, he has a very specific list of what he wants for his birthday. And I have a very specific list of what I think he NEEDS for his birthday. Haha Here's the rundown, for anyone thinking of getting him something:

  • Clothes. Nate does NOT need more clothes. He already has more clothes than will fit in his chest of drawers. The only exception is perhaps shoes, which he is VERY rough on. He wears a size 5. No, that isn't a type-o.
  • Jigsaw puzzles. He doesn't do them, and the pieces just end up all over the house. Sage chews on them, Lizzie throws them, I scream about them. Don't put us through that. :) Same goes for little critters that need to be put together or have interchangeable parts. Oh, the humanity! Have mercy on us!
  • Scriptures. Andy and I have been saving a set from Idaho Drug and we plan on giving them to him "from Grandpa Boyle."
  • A journal. This is something my mom gave to me when I turned eight, and I plan on doing the same for my kids. I have dibs on the journal! :)
  • Books. Nate loves to read and is a pretty good little reader! He'll read anything, really, as long as it isn't about or for girls.
  • Dragons. In any shape or form. I'll even relent on the clothing if you find him a dragon shirt.
  • Art supplies. Colored pencils, crayons, paper. No markers, please, as they end up decorating my furniture and/or children (and sometimes dogs) instead of the paper.
  • Avatar: The Last Airbender toys
  • "The Karate Kid" movie. He's never seen it, but it might be good for him to see a little black kid be empowered.
  • A sea monster...thing. I guess it's a playset that has a sea monster in it?? Dunno.
Thus ends the wish list. Coming soon: The Family Christmas Wish List
