Before anyone wants to judge me for spoiling the child, remember that I have never spent Christmas or her birthday with her so I’m entitled (or is it Addie who is entitled) to a little indulgence. I think I’ve had as much fun shopping for her as she will have with her surprises.
There are clothes. There are books. There are sandbox and pool toys. There are shoes. There are Legos. There are drawing and coloring tools. There are bubbles and a bubble wand and a bubble shooter. There is a Frozen night light.
There are bath toys.
Some of the things will be on the bed for her when she gets here but others will be put away and given out each day after her nap. A surprise after her nap . . is that a bribe or is it incentive?
The little pink lap desk has a zippered pouch (kinda like a little backpack) underneath it so I’m going to put some sticker books and a book or two, along with a small box of Crayons and some snacks for the road in there and give that to her as they leave to go home. Or, maybe I’ll try to stuff myself in the little zippered pouch and go home with them!
Better yet, I’m not thinking about them going home . I will enjoy the time I have with them.
