He has a large spool of paper, crayons, play-doh, a jumbo dry-erase book, a sticker book, a chalkboard and a mom who will help him draw Brobee.
(Oh yes, and a headless robot. I can't forget the robot. His head is just resting in the general neck area for the photo, but do not think for a moment that it is in any way attached.)
He has Star Wars toys, Little People toys, Veggie Tales toys, Yo Gabba Gabba toys, a Thomas trainset, a handmade Tee Pee, a play kitchen, play food, a teddy bear rug, a lantern, a little wooden chair, a little upholstered recliner and hundreds of books.
He has cozy places to play and a cozy place to sleep.
And a family who loves him, including two little Uncles (now aged 10 and 8) who once owned about 75% of the stuff I just mentioned.
Best of all, he receives zillions of hugs and kisses every day.
His second birthday is six days from now. SIX DAYS. What do I do? What can I give him? Will he notice if he doesn't get presents?
I think that during his third year of life, I may try to give him two zillion kisses and hugs per day. And to spend more time with him outside. Those are the things I can give him that he really needs. And I think I might need them too.
Besides I already gave him a sister this year. A baby sister should get me off the hook. Two year old boys love baby sisters, right? Mmmhmm, they do, deep down in their hearts. Really really deep down.
