|Lucy's birthday cake - 2010|
What I forgot was to buy Lucy a birthday present - never even thought about it before Monday. I had some shopping time yesterday, so Tuesday in the car I asked Lucy what present she wanted for her birthday. Here was her response:
Cinderella Playdoh, a Surfboard, a kite, and a Belle pillow.
OK - one of those things I can do, I'm sure they have kites somewhere although I didn't see them at Target yesterday. Cinderella Playdoh and a Belle pillow - not even sure they make those. And the best one A SURFBOARD - do 2 year-olds ask for this stuff? I told her that she couldn't have a surfboard because we didn't live near the ocean, she said she'd just use it in the pool this summer.
I settled on a regular old playdoh factory thing where you make "cakes" (which she will probably eat knowing her history) and a couple Toy Story poseable dolls. Not very exciting but hopefully she will accept them given the excitement of having a party. Cate got her a princess bedtime stories book, which is a perfect gift since Lucy steals hers every night.
Poor youngest child - I'm pretty sure I had presents for Cate ordered from cute shops a month before her birthday at that age.
Lucy's 2nd birthday - poor thing I didn't even wash the chili off her face for pictures!
