So I’ve been trying to get the boys to tell me some things they might light for Christmas. Jake wants some crazy video spy watch, while Noah seems fixated on this scooter-backpack thing he saw a commercial for back in the summer before we got rid of cable. I had no idea what he was talking about — was it like a Jansport backpack and a scooter came inside it? After much searching I finally found it (confirmed by Jake) and this crazy thing is like $100! And not at all anything that a little boy Noah’s age needs. It might be fine for a college student or a bike messenger but… he’ll have to think of some other ideas.
