Making A List

I went back and forth this year with having Spencer do an actual Christmas list to send to Santa. I thought it might be fun but then figured it would be more fun when he could write the list himself in his handwriting.

Imagine my surprise when he came home one day and told me they had made a list for Santa at school. I immediately asked what he put on his list and his response is the same response we have been getting for about 3 months now. Shakity Shake Bridge, Chameleon Crunch game and the wonderful Dog Poop game.

Let me tell you about this Dog Poop game. Spencer was being silly one day, as 3 almost 4 year olds can be and blurted out he was going to ask Santa for a dog poop game. I rolled my eyes and quickly told him no such game existed and Santa would not find it funny. He cackled and was certain that Santa surely would. I ignored his repeating of dog poop game and thought it was forgotten. Until lo and behold comes the commercial to end all commercials:

And boy was he thrilled. Beyond thrilled! The Dog Poop game existed and now he can ask Santa for it and mock me. Seriously folks, a game about picking up dog doo. It's just so wrong and now I can't help but laugh. And wonder if Santa really will bring him the dog poop game...


  1. Of course Santa will bring him the dog poop game!!

    I give my kids the TRU and Target catalogs and let them cut out toy pics and tape them on their list. Then we deliver the list when Santa visits the mall. Very effective, the kids love it, and mommy gets ideas.

  2. DH & I have rolled our eyes at that commercial for a while now. I bet Spencer saw it one day when you didn't - these kids remember the most random things! Another game that I'm shaking my head over is the one where the best liar wins. Really? That's what we want to teach our kids? Oy. Anyhow, best of luck to Spencer on his wishes being granted by Santa! ;)

  3. This is great!!! I thought it was bad enough that Landon really really really really wants "Pop the pig" for Christmas. "Mom, you put burgers in his mouth and you press on his head and his tummy blows up and burgers go EVERYWHERE!"

    Thats nothing compared to your dog poop game. So, does he get the game if he's good. . . or if he's bad?!?!

  4. It's hard to find knowledgeable people for this topic, however, you seem like you know what you're talking about!
