Rather than try to pick out something that he didn't have but wanted, Brian and I just decided to take the little man with us to pick out his new toy. He was so grown up about the whole thing. I just explained that I didn't know that he already had a Buzz robot, and that I was sure that he wouldn't want two, so we would trade it in for a new toy.
Well, to say the very least, a four-year-old in Toys R Us during the week of Christmas is overwhelming. There were people everywhere, searching for all kinds of treasures.
After Maddox the Magnificent carefully poured over every aisle, weighing all of the options, he decided on three enormous stuffed animals - a tiger, a gorilla, and a bear. They were all precious. I must say, I was kind of excited to see him choose simple toys over the complicated options that are available today.
