“What’s the hot toy the kids want this Christmas?”

“What do you want for your birthday?”
My family is blessed with generous, far-flung relatives who thoughtfully want to give my kids (and my husband and me) wonderful gifts.

Not to mention the added dread of new toys and stuff flooding into a home that I’d tried so hard to keep organized.
THE SOLUTION? WISH LISTS!
People register for weddings, kids send their lists to Santa, Amazon even has a list option. So why not keep an ongoing wish list that relatives could consult for any gift-giving occasion?
