Anthony’s birthday was on Tuesday and Joshua’s was Wednesday, so we have been in party mode! I can’t believe my Joshua is already three! He is growing up so fast. He is becoming Mr. Independent and whenever I try to help him with something says “I can do it myself!” in his high pitched little boy voice. He constantly makes us laugh with the silly things he does. We love you Joshua!
Ah, the presents. This is probably the first time I have not pre ordered a birthday gift. I could not figure out what to get this child. He loves to build things but he already has 4 building sets, loves trains but already has a huge train set, I seriously could not think of a single thing he needed or was terribly interested in. I dragged all three kids to probably 5 stores last week looking for ideas and I cannot believe how many dumb mindless toys there are! There are lots of great things for babies, but not much for the inbetween stage. I finally took him- on his birthday- as a desparate last minute attempt to find something. We went to Target (should have gone there first- they have the best selection of quality toys) and let him choose from 4 things and he chose a little people zoo set. Then we went to their favorite place- Barnes & Noble and got him a few books. Who knew shopping for a 3 year old could be so hard???
