I can’t believe it’s almost December already! No wonder traffic’s getting worse.
That aside, it’s gift giving time again!
Speaking of gifts, I’ve been secretly keeping a list of all the things that I’d want to have. Want, being the operative word. Haha! I thought I’d share it with you anyway, just so you’d get a glimpse of what I’m taking interest on these days. I’ve given this list a rather justifying name:
Supermom’s Wish List to Stay Super
Not that I am.
Okay, maybe just a little.
1. LEGO Mindstorms (P35,099.75 Hobbes and Landes)
Because even supermoms need a sidekick. For the uninitiated, LEGO Mindstorms is the robotics part of the popular brick brand. Through it, one can design and build his own moving and talking LEGO robots. That means I can design a sidekick that can help me wake the children up, get them dressed, and send them off to school! Yey! Okay, maybe that’s a little too farfetched. A robot that can answer the kids’ infinite “Why’s?” perhaps?
LEGO Chain Reactions (P790 National Bookstore)
Because I have to teach our bricks new tricks. This is a book that teaches you how to make simple machines that create chain reactions. You know, the one where a rolling ball triggers a lever, which sets off a set of dominoes, which then triggers another ball to move, which then triggers another… You get the picture. I’ve decided to take this off my list because I figured I can work up my brain cells and do this myself rather than simply follow instructions. It’ll be good to get my creative juices flowing again.
3. Keyboard for Smartphone
Because supermoms don’t have time to be idle. I’m making this entry in a cafe as I wait for the kids to get off from school. I’m tapping the keys off of my smartphone while missing the sound of the tapping on the keyboard. It’s so much easier to tap away on the keyboard than to press the letters off the screen. Don’t you agree?
4. Hoverboard (P19,999.75 Toy Kingdom)
Because a supermom has to have her wheels! I don’t really have a good reason for this apart from it looking so cool. I can just imagine cruising down the grocery aisles with this. LOL! The staff at Toy Kingdom was gracious enough to let me try it. I managed to move with it without falling off. I can’t wait to try them again!
That’s it for mine.
As for the rest of the family…
- Portable Hard Drive. Because there’s just too much data to process and store.
- Polo Shirts. Because superdads need a wardrobe change too.
- Jigsaw Puzzles. Because they’re into it these days. Plus, it exercises their superbrains. I hope! Check out these uber cute packaging of jigsaw puzzles from Crocodile Creek!
- LEGOs and Play-Dohs. Because they never seem to get tired of these.
Making Others Super
Okay, enough of us. How about giving back to others?
Around this time of the year is the time when we pack up our little extras into a big box and give to Santa to distribute. It clears up the house and brings joy to those in need.
In case we don’t have enough toys to give, there’s always the SM Christmas Bears of Joy to participate in.
On that note, let the holiday shopping begin! 🙂
