Mellow Yellow Monday 038: Scooter

My son is turning 8 next week – oh, my! How time flies! I am thinking what to give him on his 8th birthday. Last year, his Papa and I asked him what he wanted for his birthday. He requested this scooter because his classmates had one, too. Of course, we granted his request:

This has been my son’s favorite toy. He likes riding on it after school.

This year, I wanted to ask him what he wants again but I think I want to make his birthday a bit different from last year. So, since last summer (April) I’ve been asking him about what kinds of toys he like and eavesdropping on his conversations with his playmates. So far, this is what I’ve gathered and I took the liberty of researching for its price and availability in the Philippines. So without further ado, this is his top three most-wished gifts:

 

My son’s friends have been raving about the Game Boy Advance (above, left) and my son is convinced he has to have one after he’s played with his friend’s GBA. He wouldn’t stop talking afterwards – morning, noon, and nighttime. He didn’t ask us to buy him one {yet} but he did ask us if we already have a birthday present for him, lol. I can imagine him playing non-stop if ever we decided to give this to him.

Of course, any boy will say they’d like to have a new pair of shoes on their birthday. Not only just a pair of shoes, my boy was so specific – he wants a running shoes for his PE class, just like in the middle photo above. I asked him why he likes rubber shoes and he told me, without blinking, that rubber shoes make him run fast. I rest my case. As an afterthought, he also asked us if his Tito Bigg will buy him a soccer jersey. Like his Papa and uncles, my boy likes soccer and he wants a jersey. His Tito Bigg promised to get him but not sure if it’s for his birthday or for Christmas.

Now that I have his wishlist, I’ll go now and find money to buy him these, lo.
