- Playing with LEGO®. He’s a few years away yet, but man I cannot tell you how cool it will be. I have a couple of huge bins of the stuff in storage in the basement for him, and you know, as an adult, I should have an excuse for buying the newer stuff. “It’s for my son!”
In all seriousness, though, I think LEGO® is one of the greatest toys ever and something every kid should have access to.
- Riding bikes! You knew this was going to be on the list, right? And none of those cheap-ass department store bikes for my kid. Heck no! I’m going to build him a Strider frame sometime in 2013 — maybe in Reynolds 953 stainless or out of titanium — as his first step toward learning to ride the real thing.
- Christmas shopping for mommy! I mean how fun will that be? “No, Eddy, mommy doesn’t need a baby goat. No, I don’t know where to buy a baby goat. Yes, baby goats are cute. Until you look at their pupils and realize they’re hellspawn. Yes, daddy is weird.”
- Bringing him home from the NICU. Need I say more?
