So "Santa" went and tried to do some Christmas shopping today. I went to the toy store knowing exactly what Brooks had written on his Christmas list. (Basically everything in the store!) I was able to find one thing for him that I was excited about. Other than that, I am having trouble.
Up until this point, I have been able to get cute, "little kid" gifts for him. But this year it is all different. He wants every kind of action figure they make. He wants Transformers, Star Wars things, and toys that he just thought looked cool, but didn't even know what they were. So here comes my problem. I walked around today looking and looking and I didn't even see anything that looked like fun. Then I realized what the problem is. I AM A GIRL!!!
Oh to go back to the days of wondering what new Barbie Santa was going to bring me. Then me and Christina or Monica would have fun dressing them up and creating a whole life for them. Sometimes we would even have fashion shows with them. What about the Cabbage Patch Kids? I remember going and buying a diaper bag just to carry all my doll clothes in. (As you can see I was not a tomboy.)
I didn't grow up with a brother, so there weren't any action figures, etc. even in my house. I mean what do you do with these toys? Do you make up stories about them, or is that just a girl thing?
Sadly, I didn't even go down the Barbie aisle because I knew it would only make me sad.
Now don't misunderstand me, I LOVE MY BOYS! I wouldn't trade them for anything! I just feel at a loss at what to get. Let me leave you with these thoughts....
I LOVE MY BOYS!
I LOVED MY BARBIES!
BOYS TOYS ARE GOING TO GIVE ME PROBLEMS.
I AM A GIRL AND PROUD OF IT!
