Dear Postal Worker,
It seems you have made a grave mistake. Recently you delivered an American Girl Magazine to our home. While this made our daughter very happy (“Look at all the pretty dolls, Mommy!”), it certainly was NOT what our 3 year-old son wanted.
I was forced to endure 10 minutes of the saddest 3 year-old telling me, “Don’t want a doll book!” (Made worse by his sister’s glee as she flipped through page after page of “girltopia.”)
I explained that, that just happened to be what was in the mail today, which led him to wanting to see what else was in the mail.
The mortgage bill didn’t thrill him (I’m not excited by it either, truth be told), neither did the grocery store ad.
Wasn’t there at least a car advertisement you could have slipped in the mailbox?
Next time there just may just be a 3 year-old waiting for you at the mailbox the next day, and he won’t be happy.

Can’t imagine why the mortgage bill wouldn’t thrill him…cute, cute post! Enjoy the coming week.
LOL – Yeah, can’t imagine! 🙂

Oh no! This happens at our house quite a lot. Our girls both have magazine subscriptions to a few different magazines and they never come on the same day. That means I have one super happy girl and one miserable girl. They are way older than your son and they still feel that way. It does feel a bit like being left out. 🙁
It is like being left out! And at that age he just doesn’t understand how mail works really. I’m thinking next time I’ll hold off on handing her the catalog until I have something with a car or truck on it, too.
Poor little guy, I know Dinosaur loves getting highlights in the mail. It’s a big thing to get your own mail, hopefully next time he’ll have his own mail.
Yes, I’ve been thinking of getting them some sort of magazine or something… They love when the toy ads come in the mail! They flip through those things for weeks!

Oh my, that breaks my heart that he didn’t get any fun mail too. Shame on the postal service.
I wanted to drop in and say thank you for your sweet comment on my blog today. I hope you have a great rest of your week and your little boy receives something fun in the mail. 🙂
Thanks so much for stoopping by… You got to admit, that is a sad looking boy there! 🙂
My grandson loves the Toys-R-Us ads! Maybe there will be one of those in your mail soon to make up for his disappointment:-)
Oh, they both love those! At Christmas time when all the toy ads come out, they lay around for weeks so the kids can flip through them over and over… and then we cut them up for craft time.
I had to throw out that American Girl magazine in the middle of the night because the contents would have cost me a fortune! My daughter could not put it down and that scared me.
Fortunately, for my son, the Target catalog came the same week, so I got to hear over and over again what Wii games he wanted. Note to self: I need to grab the mail when my kids are not around!
LOL – Yes! I need to get it when they aren’t around too! Then I can make sure they each have something of interest before they look it over.
Thankfully my daughter believes that you can’t have American Girl dolls until you are 10. One day she is going to catch on…or be 10 and expect one!
That’s hilarious! I love the look on his face. Poor boy.
Yes, he is one for some dramatic faces!

Awe poor guy. I can just imagine his disappointment. Hopefully today something ‘boyish’ will be in the mail for him!

So sweet. Well, the Christmas ads should be out soon and they’re sure to have cars and trucks.
