”We will just buy a small gift.”
Family and friends have been doing that for five years, and sometimes just because it looked good at the time or one boy touched it in store.
We now have an extensive library of toys and books. Being us, all are boxed and shelved so as to ease the declutter process each afternoon.
What I would prefer to hear, or what I dream of hearing:
“We’ll drop a few dollars into their accounts.” Yes, each boy has one.
“We’ll donate a few dollars to your choice of charity in their name.” RFDS
We did the coolest thing for Jai for Xmas: We dressed his teddy bears in new underwear – including a T-rex, bear, kangaroo, koala, crocodile and pig! Why?
Recently he received ‘Aliens Love Panta Claus‘ , ‘Monsters Love Underpants‘ and ‘Dinosaurs Love Underpants‘ – so we figured his jaw would hit the floor if he woke to find his teddies wearing underpants!
And he did. It was a very funny morning for us on Xmas. I suspect my little men will be telling people about it for months.
I bet your kids also had a great Xmas day!
PS. We receive a small commission from any purchase you make when you follow the links to fishpond.com.au. All money will go into each of the boy’s piggy-banks. Cheers!
