I have gone back and forth about what advent calendar to get for Addie this year. I’ve done Barbie, LOL Dolls, Disney little books and one year I came up with all the little gifts myself, wrapped them and attached numbers. Nothing I found online really struck me as what I wanted to buy.
I could have sworn that Addie told me her other grandma was getting her a Barbie advent calendar. Addie has become a big Harry Potter fan. I have never read the books and never been a fan but Chad, Nicole, Nicole’s sister – they’re all big fans so that explains Addie’s Harry Potter enthusiasm.
Very early yesterday morning I was looking online, trying desperately to find the right one for her, and saw where I could order a Harry Potter advent calendar and it would arrive today. Doubtful since my Miss Babs yarn still hasn’t arrived . . but hope springs eternal. So, I ordered it.
On the way home from the farmers’ market yesterday morning, Addie said “I’m so excited about the advent calendar Nana got me. Did I tell you it’s Harry Potter?” What?? I said “I thought she was getting you a Barbie advent calendar!” Addie said “No! It’s Harry Potter.”
When we got home, I rushed into the house, got online to cancel the order and it had already been shipped. Ughh! Addie was still talking about Nana’s advent calendar. She said “It’s Lego and it has a piano.” OH! I saw that one but that’s not the one I got her. The one I got her has little people. I think it’s just people but it definitely isn’t Lego.
I think, considering her Harry Potter craze right now, she’ll be happy to have two related advent calendars. So glad I didn’t get the same one her other grandma got.
