"We have too many books." This is what my sister told me when I was trying to figure out what to buy her daughter for her birthday. I didn't even realize it was possible to have too many books--it's not like they are all the same book! The amazing thing is that they have a zillion toys. Seriously, the house is overrun with toys. It just makes me sad that my sister would prefer to get more toys for her daughter than books. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad"> I'll probably end up buying clothes, although she has plenty of that, too. What in the world do you get a child who has everything? I'm too far to give the gift of time. Otherwise I could take her out for a special day.
