Normal. Anything involving sitting or electronics is the last thing a toddler will let you do. You'd be better off trying to clean your whole house than to write just one email.

I honestly don't remember. I remember that I have sent cards and gifts since becoming an adult, but have no memory of what we did before. I remember watching sitcom characters celebrate.

Good brainstorming here. The balloons would pop if played upon, but I am going to look up what wheatie bags are. Sensory rather than active play is an idea, too.
