Anna’s German grandparents asked us to pick and order a present for her birthday based on Anna’s preferences.

  • Me: Anna, what would you like Oma and Opa to give you for your birthday?
  • Anna: I cannot tell you! If I tell you my wish, it won’t come true.
  • Anna’s papa: No, it’s only for when you blow the candles on your cake or wish upon a star. For the birthday present you have to tell us.
  • Anna: Well, I already have almost too many toys. So whatever they decide will be good.
  • Me: Maybe you want a bike?
  • Anna (excitedly). Yes, I want a bike! But… only when I am older. I still have to practice my trike first.

I am linking this post to Tiny Talk Tuesday hosted by Not Before 7.

So, are you getting a bike?

I love that she didn't want to tell you because then her wish wouldn't come true.

This entire post is so cute! Can't tell you as her wish wouldn't come true, Almost too many toys, and a bike but only when I am older.

Have any ideas what you are going to get her?

Bear says that sometimes that we have too many toys but I love how Anna said "almost". Too funny!
