I was talking to a buddy of mine today as I was heading to West Des Moines, and he was telling me about quizzing his 4 year old daughter on what she wanted for Christmas. She LOVES dolls and of course that was her answer....she wanted ANOTHER doll.
Well being a typical annoying Dad, he kept needling her for something else. He'd say, "There's GOT to be something else other than a doll, you've got WAY too many now." Finally she answered him. She said, "OK then, I want a bathroom in MY room."
He was so taken back by her answer that he just had to sit and think about it for a while. Wondering what would compel a 4 year old to ask for such a thing, and finally asking the inevitable...."WHY do you want a bathroom in YOUR room?" Her reply, "So I don't have to walk all the way down to the end of the hall at night to go.....duh!"
My wife's been asking me the same question about what I want for Christmas.....I now have an answer for her thanks to a 4 year old. And when this young lady gets in her 40's or older, she'll realize just how PERFECT her answer actually was! lol
