The 4-year-old wasnt on his best behavior when he opened his. Am pretty sure he'll love it when he figures out what it is.
The 5-year-old was thrilled, put it on and spent the rest of the day being a pilot. Am almost sure hes never seen Hogans Heros, but when he saw himself in the mirror, he zipped the jacket all the way up, checked out the patches. Pulled the pilot cap down on his forehead, tilted it to the side, smirked and raised one eyebrow, fists on hips. Said, I am the man.
His sister, who will be 8 in June, was not happy and went to her room. I knocked on her door and asked what was wrong.
Boys get all the good stuff. I just get dumb girl clothes. Even my Legos are pink. Why cant girls be pilots and drop bombs?
I assured her they can and do. Am sure she'll love her bomber jacket and the girls fly too tee shirt when she gets them in June.
