Katie was so excited this morning because I told her that when she wakes up it will be daddy's birthday. So first thing she wanted to do was give daddy his presents that she picked out for him at the Dollar Store.
It was a lot of fun shopping with her, but the concept of gift giving is still a work in progress. We had a few almost meltdowns because she wanted to keep putting toys that she wanted in her basket. But what can you expect...at 2 and a half it is really hard to understand that the goal is to pick things out for others and not yourself. I am sure that next year she will really start to "get it". In the meantime daddy got some very nice "presents" (toys) this morning and it was so sweet seeing Katie so excited to give them to him. Later on she said "daddy, I will share with you." (at least she understands that concept)
Happy Birthday to my wonderful husband and daddy!
