Dear Jack: Cutting Open a Shark on Christmas Morning

10 years, 1 month.

Dear Jack,

What to get a 10 year-old boy for Christmas in 2020?

It definitely was a Fortnite-themed season for you, as you now have 10 of the action figures; as well as a tower for them to climb and a remote controlled golf cart for them to ride on.

This is all despite you never actually playing the video game that the Fortnite characters are based on.

But you were also very excited about the Treasure X Sunken Gold Shark.

You discretely pulled out the plastic red knife included with the toy, then proceeded to cut open the shark’s stomach.

Mission accomplished:

You successfully pulled out a handful of orange slime in order to rescue to the alien inside!

Sounds about right for a 10 year-old boy on Christmas morning 2020.

Love,

Daddy

Dear Jack: You Got a Boy Barbie Doll That Looks Just Like You

10 years old.

Dear Jack,

One of the gifts that Aunt Dana and Uncle Andrew got you for your 10th birthday was a Barbie doll little boy who amazingly looks like you!

It’s as if Mattel used you as the model for the doll!

And like Mommy pointed out, he’s even wearing a tank top; which is mainly what you wear anytime the weather is warm.

Seriously- the hair, the eyes, the smile… the personality!

What a cool present to receive for your birthday!

You explained to me that your Jack doll has been playing alongside your Fortnite action figures.

Makes perfect sense!

Love,

Daddy
