The latest edition to toddler’s collection of The Cars memorabilia.Â A watch with who else but The Cars, Lightning McQueen. This is from BonusLink points exchange.
Arrived by courier this morning, Thank God!Â ‘Cos I had been asked, “Today is long-long yet anot?Â Postman come yet anot?” every single day, almost hourly.Â (we told him it will be a loooong time before he gets it ‘cos we had to order online and wait for them to make the watch)
Pheww….I hope this will be the last of his craze for The Cars.Â We have bedsheets, the whole range of McDonald’s freebies, cushions, stickers, cards……
Just to recollect the thoughts:
#1 son – Crazy for Power Rangers and we even spent over RM400 to take him to see some pyrotechnic Power Rangers show in Stadium Negara sometime in mid 1990s.Â Included in the craze was some kick-ass super expensive over RM200 per box Power Rangers than can morphed into a huge beast.Â Go, go Power Rangers….
#2 son – Had the craze for miniatures ships and planes.Â The whole lot of the WWII stuffs, including those tiny cans of paints that cost RM7.50 per can (and you need like a dozen cans to paint a single ship).Â Must have spent over RM2K on his craze.
#3 son – Was crazy for Power Puff girls (heh, lucky he no longer fancy them anymore, OMG!) and we had Power Puff girls soft-toys, bed sheets, pillow cases, curtains…..
#5 son – This is just the beginning of another childhood indulgence.
Of course, the above are just some of the unique things they like.Â This does not include the boxes and boxes of Legos, Lasy and other boys’ stuffs.Â There are things like bicycles and now skateboards.Â Plus the eldest is now hunting for a motorbike.
Anyway, it is worth every bit of it.Â My toddler had been following me around the house and even banged on my door when I was bathing and shouted, “MOMMY, I LOVE YOU ALOT!”Â Â After 3 hours since the arrival of the courier man, he is still holding the box, walking around, saying, “I am so happy lor.”Â *sigh*Â Who can resist that? Moments like these only last for a few years, so parents, better indulge and enjoy.Â Hopefully next time, when I am 70 years old, I can ask for a 1 carat solitaire diamond to don my wrinkly hands.
