I’m back, and I’m actually going to blog today instead of pimp out my store! Aren’t you proud of me?
So, let’s talk Christmas, shall we? This is the first year that I truly feel like Anna will be in the spirit of things. And what better way to teach your child about the true meaning of Christmas than to spoil her with a bunch of toys that will get played with once or twice and then shoved into the corner?
Fa la la la la.
Actually, this year we’re very excited that she’ll have some gifts to open up on Christmas morning. I am absolutely giddy with the stuff I’ve purchased so far. I’m more excited about her gifts than I ever was about mine.
Here’s what will be under the tree on Christmas morning. If you’re still looking for some suggestions on what to get your little one, maybe this will help to point you in the right direction.
Most of this was purchased from Wal-Mart online. They’re having a fantastic cyber week sale, and most of the items offer free shipping to your home, site to store or $.97 shipping – you really can’t beat it.
I’m already prepping her for a basketball career. If she takes after me, she will be tall. If she takes after her father, she will be athletically inclined. I hope she’s our hybrid. Otherwise she’ll be tall and clumsy. That’s wasteful.
If she doesn’t have a future in b-ball, perhaps she can be an artist. Or perhaps this chalkboard and whiteboard easel will dissuade her from making crayon murals on our walls.
Anna’s latest obsession is putting her hand in your cup and playing with whatever beverage is inside. She may have a mild obsession with liquid. We’re looking in to it.
Since daddy’s Rock Band guitar only plays when it’s plugged in.
I bought this for purely selfish reasons. I want to play with it. Who wouldn’t? Plus, I’m grooming her to be our personal chef/clothes washer.
The princess theme is debatable, but I couldn’t pass up the stamp stuff. My child is a fiend for anything that she can stamp on, color on, tear up, etc. I’m a glutton for punishment, but I like seeing her happy!
When Anna holds me hostage in her room while she “cooks” – I want to have something pretty and bright to look at.
By golly, it’s a Christmas miracle – paint that doesn’t actually paint! My house (and cats) will be happy to know that Anna can’t do much damage with this set.
I pray that this laptop will be a good replacement for my laptop. Anna has a mild obsession with all electronics, and she spends her days and nights trying to hack into my work laptop. It says her name, so hopefully that will grab her attention long enough for me to put an anti-Anna virus protector on my computer.
One of the coolest gifts my mom ever got me was a personalized crayon/coloring book holder. I couldn’t find an exact replica, but this is close enough. She’s getting the cherry bag (far left). Check out this Etsy store if you want something similar – Kirk’s Korner.
To go with her new kitchen, of course! Check out Baby Paige’s store.
It became glaringly obvious to me as I was writing this post that I may have gone a little over board this year. I’m making up for last year when all I gave her was a used spatula. Christmas comes but once a year, and aside from her Satanna moments, she’s a great kid. We are truly blessed with this little girl.
OK, so spill it – what are you going to spoil your little one with this year?
