I love Middle's list, especially "stay home alone for an entire day." It's funny how age has changed my perspective. I remember when I used to think like him and want so badly to be independent! Reading that wish of his is a reminder to me to look at my life's burdens as blessings instead! I'm LUCKY that I'm a grown up and can stay home alone!

Of course, I have the same wish as Middle. I would love to be home alone myself, without the kids! Ha, ha!

I do love me a good list, and you gave me FOUR great lists! Mr. Geek? Um? It's not about the bike.

Rojo's greatest wish is to be a stay-at-home dad. From his lips...
