My son spotted a hobbyhorse on a stick, at the General Country Store, in town. He was three and it was Christmas time.
He galloped around the shop and pressed a little button to make the toy neigh. I asked him to put it back as we were checking out. He petted the mane and whispered a secret into it's fluffy ear.
It was under the tree on Christmas morning.
Since that day, he rode it twice. The thing sat in the corner; it's fluffy ears collecting dust. Time to let it ride off into the sunset.
One of the many things I enjoy about doing The 24 Things is the NO PURCHASE RULE. it helps curb the habit of an impuse buy.
