I can not believe it is my big girls birthday on Friday. Where have these 8 years gone. It seems like only yesterday since she was born. She is growing and changing everyday and is well on her way to becoming a beautiful, caring and smart young lady.
Her thoughts and mind are completely her own. And even though there are days I don’t quite understand her logic she still entrances me with her ideas and mad ways.
Each year I find it more of a struggle about what to get her for her birthday gift. It seems that children these days – or maybe it’s just mine – have everything. This year I asked BG1 what would she like for her birthday. Her response – Surprise me! SURPRISE ME!
This year I really had to think hard about what to buy an 8 year old for her birthday. When it was LM’s birthday in December, that was easy. I had no problem buying toys for him. However BG1 is that much older now, and although she loves toys she has grown out of many things she used to play with. That and the fact I think she could open her own toy store already.
The birthday gift
I thought long and hard and this is what we have bought our 8 year old this year for her birthday.
