Katie, that all sounds so crazy, but I'm glad he has options! How is the tooth doing? We had one pulled loose once and the dentist I called said just to watch it. It came out a few years later.
Plaid, I hope the move goes well! So glad the birthday was a fun one!
Alicia, sounds like a great day! A weekend getaway sounds fantastic!
My DH was just saying tonight that he wishes we could find people who believe the things we believe about parenting and such. Someday, I'd love for him to meet more AP families! We know some, but HE doesn't know many other than mamaverdi's family. Anyway, whether it be a mama's getaway or a family trip, I'm in!
Judah's birthday is Monday and I'm still debating what to get for him! I have some die cast cars that he REALLY wants and I know he'll love. I also managed to snag a Bamboletta doll, though not specifically for his birthday - it was just by chance that I got one now. And, it probably won't be here in time, anyway. He is doing a lot of playing "baby" and such given we're in countdown for the new one (still 7-8 weeks, but still!) and so a doll sounds great... BUT he can't "birth" a 15" bambo doll quite as easily as the floppy green gecko he's been playing with.
We actually have other baby dolls that he'd love but they're ALL packed.
Except for his heavy baby I gave him last year whose arm got torn off.
So I'm trying to figure out what to do, perhaps along the lines of something ACTIVE for him. He's a very active kid and can drive us bonkers! We have no backyard for them to play in and it's been scorching hot here for months so outdoor options are limited.
He loved a gymnastics place we went to but it's too far away. Gymboree sounds fun but the big boys can't go (and would want to) and then baby's coming... So I'm thinking of maybe a big slide for indoors? Maybe a tumbling mat? Would he know what to do with it? Or one of those pop-up tunnel/tent things?
Thankfully we've rearranged such that they have a big playroom with floor space (since most things are in storage!) so I can handle something that I can fold up and put away even if it takes up a lot of space when it's out. I just need for him to have something to do other than riding his bike around the house and smashing into things whilst screeching loudly.
