The boy and girl's birthday is coming and as before, we are faced with the dilemma of what to buy them for their birthdays. This is because we have been buying them toys all year round so when it comes to special occassions like birthdays we are at a loss to find something special for them.
Looks like I have not learned at all. Read my old post here: Too many Toys and you will know what I mean.
Looks like I'm not alone either. This mommy is also a shopaholic for toys. In her post she said...
"The thing was, the people who wanted the toys were us. We had a fantasy of what pleasure these toys would give. We had dreams of providing them with something wonderful. And how often is that true about the toys we give our kids? How often is that we want to give them, more than the children themselves really want the toys?"
How true. I have so much pleasure shopping for toys. Sigh! Its part of the joy of motherhood. Lol!
