A Birthday Gift for Grandson Alex


CAROLYN’S DAILY POSTS: 2011

A BIRTHDAY GIFT FOR GRANDSON ALEX

     December 10 is not only my birthday, but the birthday of my grandson Alex, the son of my second daughter Kathleen and her husband, Jerry. He will be six years old.

     I asked him what he wanted for his birthday. He said a spy gear set, with a remote screen.

     Huh?

~~~~~~~~~~~~

     I have no expertise in today’s toys, so I went to the toy store. Yes, they did have spy gear. I checked it out. Instructions on the box of one in particular that I liked said that a spy watch must be purchased separately. The store didn’t carry the spy watch. I put the toy back on the pegboard hook and chose something else. I felt like I was in a foreign land.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

     He also said he loved “flashlights…to make shadows.” I neglected to look for a hand shadow book with a flashlight. It was sufficiently challenging for this dinosaur of a grandmother to figure out spy wear. I should have started with the flashlight.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

     For once I actually had the package in the mail on time.

     And included with it was a birthday gift for my granddaughter Lauren. Her birthday was in August. I wasn’t so great at getting that one out on time!
