Your Wishes Come True

In a Quickie not too long ago I asked, "What toy or game did you want as a child but never got?"

My answer to that Quickie was I always wanted an Easy Bake Oven. I thought it would have been SO cool to watch my cupcakes cooking under the heat generated by a 40 watt light bulb.

I never got it (obviously) and had to content myself with making mud pies at my grandma's house. Not ordinary mud pies either. See my grandpa was a carpenter and he had a workshop in the garage.

There was always sawdust on the floor. Sawdust mixed with a little water makes excellent frosting. A cement block stood on end made a fantastic oven. Maybe I didn't need an Easy Bake Oven after all.

What about what some of you always wanted? I have just enough fairy dust to grant your wishes. (Everyone knows I don't have real dust.. *cough* OCD!)

Princess Sonshu said... Aah! Well as a child i always wanted barbies and i got em too so nothing as such!

Here's a Pooper Scooper Barbie in case you didn't have one already.
Jeni said... A brother or a sister! That was the one thing I wanted more than anything else but never received.

It's not easy to get a real child. Ask Madonna! Here's the next best thing.

Misty Dawn said... Answer - An RC Helicopter!!!

She wants this because my hubby has one. (Giggle)

Akelamalu said... A Doll's house!

This is a nice one for you.
Margaret Waterman said... I wanted to stay up and watch the series finale of MASH and my mom said no.

It was a tearjerker. This is how it ended.

masgblog said... the boys always had this gas station that had a ramp for the cars to roll down....that was cool....oh, and I wanted a fort too.

This play fort is way cooler than a ramp for cars.

Fikticious said... Make sure you walk every isle at the grocery stored before you pick up one item...

If you're shopping then bags like this one are nice.

Although I should get bonus points for creativity, the mud and sawdust weren't all that tasty. So for me...

I hope I have a 40 watt light bulb.


Sonshu said...

Aah Skittles i sure dont have a Pooper Scooper Barbie! Its amusing and thanks by the way!

Grace said...

I think I missed that post... 'cause I would have come up with something. Perhaps you should do another post... asking us to come up with a list of things we'd like if we could have them...

My daughters have the easy-bake oven, want me to mail it to you? They never really used it much, and it's just sitting there... all lonely and such.

I used to melt crayons in my Easy-Bake (long after all my cake/cookie mixes were used up) and pour into dixie cup molds ....then I'd have one fat multi-colored crayon! Ahhhh ...memories!

Barb said...

Princess: I got my granddaughter that Barbie not knowing it was the Pooper Scooper one. She liked it.

Grace: Sure! Send it over. I sound like Bob Barker.. Come on DOWN.

Coffee: You really have a thing for crayons don't you? I do too by the way. It's the smell when you open a new box of 64!

Akelamalu said...

Oh thankyou so much Barb! What a lovely thing to do, making our wishes come true - You're a real pal xxxx

Misty DawnS said...

Wow! I've never had someone try to help me make my dream come true before - you're a true friend. Can we work on the being a nature photographer thing next? Cuz that's my TRUE dream... oh, OK, I'll stop being so demanding.

Just send Gina with my 'copter, and tell her NO sidetrips!

Barb said...

Akelamalu: That was such a nice doll house I almost kept it. :)

Misty: Um.. the 'Copter is missing. So is Gina...

maggie said...

Maggie: You got to see the Globetrotters so I went with MASH. :)
