The kids in Tau’s class recently finished a page that illustrated what they were hoping for this Christmas.
“All I want for Christmas is a mermaid.” Why? “Because she can swim.”
“All I want for Christmas is Hot Wheels Octo Battle. Because his HEAD BLOWS UP!”
“See Mom, I drawed his brain sticking out. The red part.” Sigh.
He assures me that this toy is useful because when the octopus’s head cracks open, the brain is made of sponge and you can use it to mop up any water you’ve messed on the table.
Oh, no, wait. My mistake. That’s Dr. Bones Color Change lab, another toy getting up there on his All I Want for Christmas list.
