Jayda would give her babies, Makayla would give her makeup, and Dawson will give his cars, but most of all they would be there for the and give the gift of together ness, and a home cooked meal, and singing christmas songs, while thinking about family and the true meaning of chirstmas.
When I was little, I was in this position a few times. One time in particular (I was about 8), I knew the girl who was going to get the gifts. I gave her some nice stuff, but I kept my very favorite stuff for myself. I was not ready to really give freely at that age.
This is a wonderful question to get kids thinking early!
Bailey doesn’t really play with “toys” anymore so he said his pool, I know Christmas is in winter but that’s what he said. He said so he could enjoy it with his family and have lots of fun:) Great question Joy. We go shopping every year and pick up a few toys like little cars or dolls, nothing to expensive and give them to Toys for Tots. Now they have Toys for Teenagers which I think is an awesome idea. Which makes me think of Jason recently telling me that he would adopt an older child, that makes me fall in love with him all over again…awwww:)
Trinity would give them her Sweet Streets. Christopher said his Woody doll from Toy Story.
It makes me think of my grandma, when we talk about this. I do a thing each year called operaion she box, and you fill a shoe box full of stuff and send it to needy kids.
I’d give them some of my shoes!! J/K
My children did this last year. They gave up their Gameboys and games they liked and didn’t like to someone who had nothing to give her children.
Erin, that is such a wonderful thing to teach your children.
Little man says his Thomas tracks. I say wow because he loves those. I’m not sure he knows what it means, he’s only 3. He probably thinks he will still have his.
I was VERY surprised they chose to do it. I said I had a friend who lives in Canada and has a few children…. they were having a rough time so she couldn’t buy gifts. So I suggested their PS2 games … knowing a Wii was coming! And then they suggested their Gameboys and quite a few other things. I ended up sending enough that each of the kids (6 in all) got a favorite item in the end. It was amazing that THEY came up with the stuff to send and I didn’t prompt at all. So sweet. 🙂
Wow Erin, I’m impressed. What a great thing you’ve taught your kids. We do the Toys For Tots and stuff each year so Bud does know what it’s like to share.
