I love my boys. I love how drastically different they are from girls. We love action movies and superheroes these days. We have several thousand matchbox cars. (Okay, I exaggerate, but it seems like that many.) Every pair of pants Jackson owns has the left knee blown out from sliding around, driving the cars. They’ve started “pretending” a lot more, mostly a cops-and-robbers type scenario. Derik likes to “fight,” a.k.a. pretend wrestling and MMA. They are boys, through and through, and I love it.
These are all things my boys would love!
1// Big Words Flash Cards ($14) – They love learning new words. This is a fun set of flashcards, for big words. I’ve never believed in talking down to kids…you’d be surprised at what they can learn!
2// Old Navy Cargo Shorts ($22.94) – Lots. Of. Pockets.
3// Superhero Mask ($4) – I think if my boys had these, they’d never take them off!
4// Chalkboard iPhone ($18) – A low-tech way for kids to have their own “phone”…what a cool way to encourage creativity and imagination!
5// Refuse to Sink Sweatshirt ($24) – I have a hard time convincing them that it’s too hot for sweatshirts…they love wearing them. Luckily, it gets chilly most nights here, even in the summer.
6// Q&A For Kids ($16.95) – I would love to have this to record all the hilarious things they say, and get them thinking!
