Hey everyone!!!


So, the judge has not come back with a decision concerning my DP's custody dispute with his ex so he hasn't been able to see or talk to his little girl in over month. Okay, I take it back he talked to her on Thanksgiving and briefly this weekend before the BioMom took the phone away from her.


Anywho... he asked her what she wanted for Christmas and she said she wrote it down but her mom had the list and she didn't remember what she put down. When my DP asked the BioMom what the DSD wanted for Christmas she proceeded to tell my DP that she only wanted 4 things and she already got them for her and she refused to tell my DP what the 4 things were.



Sooooooooooo... we're kind of at a lost for what to get her for Christmas. If anyone has a little girl around 4 years of age or if anyone has any great ideas... I'm all ears!!! 


WE really want to make this Christmas special for her. We won't get her until after Christmas (how slowly this judge is moving, it might be late January) so we won't be able to give her her presents until after that but we wanted her to know that Santa came to our place for her too. Additionally my DP's relatives are asking because they want to get her presents.



Thanks in advance!!!! thanks.gif

Me... DP.. DSS and soon... DSD

Will she be spending a significant amount of time at your house? If so, my DD at four was in love with her:






hopping ball


If you need smaller things that she can bring back and forth:


Doodle/Magnet Board

Fancy Nancy doll  (This is my DD's favorite non-baby doll. She is beautifully made.)

portable tea set

art case

magnetic dress-up dolls

Homeschooling, etsy-crafting Mama to spunky DD (12-04) and wife to DH.

She will probably get excited about anything you get her but I understand the want/need to make it very special.


My 4 and 2 year old DSDs are girlie-girls and big on learning to be independent so they love their


doll houses

baby dolls and accessories like bottles, cribs, stroller, ect

arts and craft projects that they need to cut and glue things together

painting stuff

they are crazy about that pillow pet commercial

they love their dress up clothes

I plan on getting them a princess vanity table for their room



their tricycles

they want one of those motorized cars

they like getting new clothes, underwear, socks ect

stuffed animals

one of those cute storage bins from target for their toys

their favorite dvd movies


The list of what they want can go on and on as almost everything they see on tv they want


Good thing we have a big family to divide the list up between :)

I don't have a four year old girl but I wanted to write to you. I am so sorry that you and your husband are going through this. When my DSS was 9 months DH's ex denied visitation for 10 weeks until we went back to court. It felt so long and so hard. Hope things get better.
