It's Monday, and Baby Emperor's post day. Last week, he promised a Summer Shopping List. I was in charge of R&D, specifically transportation and finance. He speaks, I type:
Hi. This is Baby E now. Today we're going to go through my list of stuff. My mom says I have to explain what I talk about first.
What my mom does when we're done with school, is the day after we're done, in the morning, she fills a basket for me and my brothers with stuff. Mostly books, like these Uglydoll books.
She gets us the stuff first, and then when we wake up and come downstairs in the morning, the basket is there for all of us with a note about summer. She makes us read the note first. And keep it. It's most of all books for the summer, but she puts in fun stuff for when it's late or cold or raining or boring. We keep the basket in the front room or classroom all summer. We call it the Summer Fun Basket and it makes the first day of vacation fun. I love getting our basket. I wake up super early when I know it's the day of the basket.
We went to the store yesterday with my notebook, and we walked around and wrote down what I hope is in my basket and stuff we liked. She said I could pick out some stuff for me for my basket.
*There's a rule now that we have to say that no one gave us money to buy this stuff or tell you about it. That's true. No one did give us money, and we have to pay for what we buy with my mom's money. No one gave us any stuff.*
First, books. This Ugly doll book comes with 4 of them, a set, but you can buy them like only one. And they're really cool. They're funny and so funny you will laugh. Even my big brothers laugh, and my mom laughs. They really are funny and only 5 dollars, right, mom? And you get to see all the cool Ugly dolls. They're easy to read. The website, but it has to be the official one, is fun.
I'll only do some stuff today because I found 3 pages on my journal of stuff I want. So, I'll only do, like one page, of stuff I want.
Well, and there's these Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, and they're ridiculously funny. They have stick people pictures that are funny. They're easy to read, and the words are funny. This website is funny, too.
Any maze books. All kinds of them.
New swimming goggles that match my new style. No more babyish shark ones.
Gear battery bubble maker with a gigantic bottle of bubble stuff. That is fun all the time.
Velcro ball and mitt set.
Basketball that glows in the dark.
Any sprinklers, and lots of them, so you don't get bored. Buy all the fun ones.It's fun to use more than one at a time.
Glow in the dark frisbees.
This big orange bike that I saw that I know I won't get, but I still want it. It was awesome. It's my favorite color. It matches my new style. The reason I want is because the bike I have was my 2 brothers' bikes already.
A new bike helmet that matches me now, I don't want my one with fish on it anymore.
Quirkle board game.
The new colored Connect 4 game.
Digital battery drumsticks that play drums in the air. I really want that. I really want that, hear me, mom?
PixO's making kits.
All the Bendaroos kits.
All the Backyardigan DVD's.
Mario Brothers for Wii.
Nintendo games of Starfy, and Kirby.
SpyGear night goggles.
SpyGear Micro ear gear.
Any Legos set. Especially the Atlantis ones.
Battle Strikers Turbo Tops.
More sidewalk chalks with the stencils that come with them. My mom buys us gardening kneeling pads for our knees for outside.
Any water Slip-n-Slides. My mom calls them Slip-n-Dies.
Any water blaster guns. Especially SuperSoaker. All kinds so your friends can have some when they come over.
Any Nerf guns. Get lots of them so your friends have some when they come over.
A snow cone maker with lots of syrups. Get 4 packs and all the flavors.
Model Magic presto-dots. They make cool monsters.
I like card games, like Blink.
A pop-up tent or tipi for outside for when you want to lay outside and play and have shade. And for having lunch, too, or popsicles.
That's my list. I hope I get some stuff I really want in the basket.
And, also, ...I don't like my mom's summer pajamas. They look like she just had a tonsillectomy. I had one, and my adenoids, too, and they made me wear a dress like that!
Sometimes I like to hang extra long floss to go from between and across my teeth so the strings hang down the sides of my jaw and walk around to my brothers and say "I'm a nutcracker."
Look in the mirror. You really do look just like one, but you have to make your jaw go up and down at the same time.
Bye. Next time I will tell you about the baby socks my mom makes me wear.
Next week I'm going to tell you that funny stuff.
