    This really makes me laugh!

    Mom & Dad for my 9th birthday I want:

    An ak47
    a machine gun
    a gas mask
    a tent
    toy army men
    a water gun
    some other big guns....


    Really? I looked at my husband when I saw this and asked if our son was joining a militia!
    My son is trying to convince me that "gas masks are collectibles!" I thought, all these years I've been collecting Fiestaware & Hallmark ornaments, and I could have been collecting gas masks! [​IMG]

    Gee, and I was going to get him a nice Gokart......[​IMG]

    The tent sounds like a really awesome birthday gift. Maybe some other camp gear like binoculars and a nice lantern. Don't worry though, that's the same list that I've gotten from all my boys at about the same age. Only a few have actually enlisted in the service and none are in the militia.

    Sounds like a fairly normal eight year old boy. I'd have asked for hand grenades and mortars as well! [​IMG]

    Well his birthday is in late June, so I give it time and he'll probally ask for that too! [​IMG]
    I really thought a gokart would be a hit! Little do I know! [​IMG]

    LOL,, my son used to give me lists like that and now he's in the Army and has all the heavy weapons he'll ever need! The tent sounds great!! I have enough shelter halves to make 8 pup tents and a ton of pop up tents that sleep from 2 to 28.

    I'm so glad my kid isn't the only one to come up with a list like this! Now I won't worry so much! [​IMG]

    Is he also a gemini? I wanted a machine gun when I was 8, and I am sure I am female. 50 years later I still get a hankering for one, every once in a while. I did get to use a grenade launcher a couple of years ago, that was pretty exciting.


    I'd go with the camping gear idea as gifts, it might work for a while. [​IMG]
