Here's what my twelve-hours-away-from-being-four year old wanted for his birthday:
- a watch
- a jack in the box, and
- a box of tiger cereal (Frosted Flakes)
"Well by golly," I remembered that he had been crying about wanting a pet recently. And this is so much more boyish than a beta fish (the only "pet" I would have been open to getting him, despite the fact that I seem to have a knack for killing them).
