One month and counting
Ok you guys… time to put your heads together and come up with an amazing idea for me. I have been trying and trying but I’ve got nothing. It’s like Fernando is on vacation in Horse Cave, KY or something. What we need here is an AWESOME birthday present for a little stinker who is turning two in exactly one month. Money is not much of an object. Noise level is no object at all – sorry Chaos. Awesomeness is definitely required.
She already has a little ride-on train thing that makes lots of noise and has lots of twiddly numbers and alphabet bits and knobs. She’s too young for a real bike. They don’t have room for a swing set right now. I was thinking about a little tiny swimming pool, but she’s not really into the water yet.
She also has one of those little Baby Einstein books that read a story to her if she wants it to. Of course she will get lots of books — that goes without saying — but that’s not intended to be the main thing. But what is intended to be the main thing… that’s the question.
I have every confidence in you people. So in the interest of charity hit me with your best second-birthday gift ideas. I don’t want to be the sucky, lame old grand-butch who gets her a pair of socks or something.
