There is nothing quite like an early birthday present, is there?
In our house birthdays kind of start early and the birthday boy or girl (or both, as the case may be) tends to be spoilt a little more.
Generally Dave and I give one combined gift and then each child gives one small gift too.
There are definitely advantages to having a large family.
So on the weekend we decided to give Ivy and Noah their ‘big’ gift.
Ivy: Don’t peek! Noah, I think you’re peeking.
Ivy again: Noah! You’re still peeking – just through a different space. (she had to be peeking too – if she could see that he was).
I think they like them.
Aww, their first i-things (now I can have mine back).
He agreed to abide by the i-thing rules – that is use only when allowed, observe the electrical device curfew and know that it will be confiscated if there is any wrong doing.
Also: no youtube.
He spent the morning dancing to Black – eyed Peas “I’ve got a feeling”
On a side note: some ‘friends’ have expressed their concern about such a gift
and even though I don’t have to justify them to anyone
here are our reasons:
1. We spend alot of time in the car, at appointments, in doctors rooms and in the hospital. It’s a great asset for long days of waiting.
2. They can use it to listen to music, take photos and use it for educational purposes.
3. It was what they asked for
4. We purchased them over a number of weeks of layby and they were on special.
