Nobody's in the office today and I don't feel like working so I'm online shopping, which led me to wonder what big gift (if any) are you getting your kids for Christmas/whatever you celebrate this year? I've been trying to tone it down on the amount of stuff I buy for him-- I find I'm way more excited about getting a lot of things than he is-- so this year, I'm trying to do like two or three substantial gifts and limited small stuff. He's getting a new set of wooden tracks/playset for this train table, which I decided on because he told me "This needs more bridges, Mommy." I got him a plasma car and we'll see if he can figure that out. I mistakenly got him a battery-powered ride-on last year and he is nowhere near ready to drive that thing. He can do the foot pedal or the wheel-- not both-- and he's a maniac behind the wheel so I was hoping he could handle the plasma car a bit better since it's really only one task. I bought him a few more train accessories, a new soccer ball and some dinosaur books (we're really into dinos right now).
I'm telling myself to be done now (as I online shop). How about you?
