I’ve shared pictures of my desk before, and no, I won’t frighten you with the total view of all the clutter. Just a couple pics of my latest companions…
They are gifts from the 4-year-old. I give her plenty and she has figured out that giving back provides its own pleasure. Her gifts to me aren’t the usual scribbled pictures to put on my fridge, although she does paint these horrific images with smiling babies with shark’s teeth. But every few days or so, she’ll come bounding into my office with something she’s sure I need. Earlier this year it was minions. You know, the little bespectacled creatures from Despicable Me. I think I have an army of little minions. She said I said I needed them.
This was yesterday’s gift. I’m sure it came from some kid’s meal, but she knew it needed to sit in the center of my desk to keep me company because my office is a lonely place, right?
Then there’s this from about a month ago. A skiing alien? She got it from one of those gumball machines in a restaurant. And since it was an alien, it had to be mine.
And here is my growing collection of pop-eyed toys…
All I can say is Christmas is going to be fun. 🙂
So tell me, what sort of gifts you get from the little ones?
