Hey Feb OhFive! It's Holiday time again...what, if anything, are you purchasing for your child this Holiday season?
Nico didn't show much interest the past 2 years and we kept everything low key. This time he'll be with his Dad for the actual special day that we celebrate, so I guess I could just coast through again and keep it low, low key, but...I got him a "flat screen" lite brite and a sack of wooden pillars that are for building a marble maze.
I know he wants some toy that he's seen on TV a couple of times (we don't really watch The Tube much at all, very sparingly really) because he's called me VERY excitedly both times it was shown on commercial to come downstairs immediately (like, he would have preferred that I RUN) to see the glory and greatness of some new Thomas toy...*sigh*
Teenagers are a different story! One wants a laptop and the other wants a Les Paul. Hello? lol, Mom is not made of $ here!!!
Anyway, just wondering if any of you want to share your Holiday kid buying ideas. Although I got Nico's two presents at a locally owned toy shop, I refused to set foot in stores on Black Friday nor will my shoes be gracing stores any other day between now and the first week of January...any shopping I do will be online.
