This Boy Makes Me Both Happy And Sad

First of all… Christmas IS about toys. I love me some learnin’ (not at school, of course) and science and books, but Christmas is a time for toys. On the other hand… this does say a lot about our society. I have a love/hate relationship with consumerism and commercialism. Now… not liking books is really okay. Maybe he really wanted a Kindle and thousands of eBooks! That would be cool! Anyway… I’ll post what the mom said about this incident below the video. She sounds pretty fucking awesome.

After opening a whole bunch of toys, my son 3 year old came across a present with books… keep in mind that this was kinda like his first “real” Christmas… and again he’s was only three years old… let me repeat… ONLY THREE YEARS OLD… And that he could just about understand and get the concept of the whole gift getting thing. I guess much to the blame of me, the media, and every commercial out there on TV he was more under the perception that you only get “toys” for christmas. To him Books are the fun time we spend reading (no less than three) every night before he goes to bed. Let me make something clear again. HE REALLY DOES LOVE BOOKS! But I’m guessing he was “overwhelmed” after opening way too many gifts (my fault I went overboard that year) and I think he felt “tricked upon” when he opened the books… plus the fact that we were laughing at his reaction kinda egged him on to say the Poo statement… He really is one of the sweetest kids I know and to see this reaction (if you know him yourself) IS cute.

I have deleted a lot of very undeserved negative comments that have been posted… I understand now that without a good understanding of the back history one could make a poor assumption of him… but now I hope you know that he was ONLY THREE YEARS OLD PEOPLE and that he only thought your supposed to get toys for christmas… partly because of how commercialized this holiday has become… we have since taught him differently… but just for kicks were gonna wrap books again for him and see what happens…
