Mom and Dad’s Don’t Forget the Batteries for the Holidays

It is that time of year for the holiday shopping season. The stores are filled with parents purchasing the latest toys for their children to open on Christmas. The one items parents forget to buy is batteries. I can remember one Christmas when my son was five years old and had wanted a remote control car. I had bought him his car, wrapped it and stuck it under the tree. Early on Christmas morning my bright eyed son woke me up as his voice was so excited to see what was under the tree. He ran to the tree and patiently waited for me to make my way into the living room. I knelt down beside him and handed him one package at a time to open.

His anticipation gleamed as he tore the wrapping paper off his presents. I saved the best present for last to entice his anticipation. I handed him the last colorful wrapped box, and he stared at it with his eyes closed. I think he was hoping that his remote control car would be in this package. As tore the last piece of wrapping paper off the box the picture of the car appeared before his eyes. He gripped the box and screamed in delight as he tried to get the box open. His voice was loud and sharp as he yelled, “I got it!” As he pulled the car out of the box and sat it on the floor he could barely grip the remote control due to his overwhelming and uncontrollable happiness.

My son began pushing buttons on the cars controls but to his surprise nothing happened. This is broke he says with tears building up in his eyes. “It is not doing anything mommy,” he said as he handed it to. His voice was crackling and the sadness lingered over his face. I knew I had forgot to get a pack of Duracell batteries for the remote control to work. I searched in all the drawers and finally found a pack of Duracell batteries that fit his car. Once I put the batteries in and turned on the car it worked. I was so relieved, and my son was back to his uncontrollable self as he drove the car all over the house. He bumped it into every piece of furniture and it still continued to run like a champ.
