Sometimes mom's come up with really great ideas.

So far The Cisco Kid has expressed an interest in just a couple of items he wants for Christmas. The items he told us about was... a bike and a razor scooter. I have been trying to pry some information out of him on other toys he might be interested in. That has not been successful. Then it hit me!! The greatest idea!! I'm sure I am not the only one who thought of doing this but when it hit me I got so excited. I decided to tell the Cisco Kid that Santa is not taking just letters anymore. He is now working on his computer and looking to see if children have registered a wish list full of toys. I proceeded to tell him that we had to go to Toys "R" Us and opening a wish list account.  Once the account was open he will get a scanner so he can scan all the toys he wants into his wish list.

Saturday, right after his Soccer game, we went to Toys "R" Us and opened the account. The person that was opening the account was so cool about it. She really played it up. She explained to The Cisco Kid how the scanner worked and handed it to him. She told him to push the yellow button and run the red beam over the bar code. After she was all done he turned to me and said...... mom you can show me what a bare code is. I didn’t realize he didn't know what a bar code was. He now knows! I can't tell you how excited he was to have that thing in his hot little hands.

It was so cute watching him run around the store and scan all the items he wanted. He was scanning so much that we had to explain to him Santa couldn't possibly get him everything. Santa has lots of children to give toys too. He said I understand! I want to give Santa options. O.K. Then!!! I can’t argue with that.

We went up and down every Isle. When it was all said and done he had scanned 76 items.

  1. That was a great idea! I bet Toys R Us will adopt it as their new Christmas registry for kids.
