Everybody wants something. For our three-year-old, it's a Tiana princess doll. And a Blackberry.
We are so not Blackberry people. Like my husband has one but...barely uses it. I just requested one from work so I don't even have one in the house. Yet A. insists she needs one. Why?
"Homsa has one."
Homsa is her "friend." Apparently, I don't know her. She isn't from preschool or the park or Barnes & Nobles. Homsa is from Norida. I asked A. if that's near Florida. It isn't.
Homsa also kicks and can be very mean. But not all the time. Homsa has a friend named Lisa who she is always calling on her Blackberry. A. says if she has a Blackberry, then she will be able to call Homsa. But if Homsa is mean, I ask, why does she need to call her?
An eyeroll. I actually got one of those. At age 3.
So what are my hopes and dreams for the New Year? Frankly, I don't feel like sharing. It's like when people ask you what you are thankful for on Thanksgiving. I just basically think it is no one's beeswax. Not trying to be a brat, I just think it's personal.
So if anyone asks, I'll talk a Tiana doll. And The Bachelor show returning. Which it is.
But that's not what I really want.
And no, it's not a Blackberry.
P.S. In case you happen to follow The Bachelor, go to abc.com to play the Rose Ceremony Game.
