So I’m thinking Thursdays will be “Thoughtful.” That is to say, what I’m thinking hard/struggling with.
Nate has the audacity to turn 2 in 10 days. That means a party. And presents. Right?
No party – I’ll start throwing a party when he can name his friends. Until that time, the party is really more for the adults. And since my friends are scattered across the country, there’s really no point. This decision was easy.
Presents? Hmmmm…again, what’s the real point at this age? He doesn’t understand the significance of the day, so philosophically I am against getting him a big, special gift. But that seems like a very mean decision.
With this in mind, I’m getting him a small, useful gift. He’s getting a backpack. Cute, right?
So, am I off base on this? When did y’all start buying your kids big gifts? When did you start planning big parties?
