Short post today,folks, as I'm existing on very few hours of sleep because B came down with a cold and slept very little due to congestion and repeated coughing. Poor baby, he's home with Daddy today.
But anyway on to my point. I recently got an email from a friend. It was entitled "My Child's Birthday Wish List"
It went like this:
I have gotten several inquiries as to what my child would like for her birthday. We sat down together and she made this list:
1. Cash register (her daddy and I are buying this)
2. Barbie horse
3. Big plastic playhouse ( hey, a girl can dream!)
5. Barbie Dad (Ken) and Barbie baby
6. Barbie house
7. Barbie clothes
8. T-ball stand and bat ( this was my addition because we need something fun in the back yard and she is just starting to get into baseball)
9. Swim lessons ( I added this too - it's great to receive something that betters you as a person and not just "stuff").
As you can see playing with Barbies has been the main past time in our house since I brought home some of my childhood toys from my recent trip back home. My child is having a pony theme party and is into ponies/horses,princesses, spiderman/superheroes among other things.
backpacks, baby dolls, or clothes because she has way too many and she will only wear clothes that she picks out and tries on - she has so many cute outfits and REFUSES to wear them.
Love you all,
So here's the thing, I guess its nice that some of the guesswork is taken out of what to get for the child's birthday but isn't this quite presumptous ?
I didn't happen to be one of the "several" that asked for the list so why did I get included ?
Ok, so the letter might have been fine if it included just the list...but the * at the end is what sealed it. I'm officially turned off.
Am I crazy or just in a sleep deprived fog and making a bigger deal out of this then need be ?
