I really can’t believe it. The first year of her life seemed to go by so slowly and since then the years seems to be speeding up. One day soon I’m going to wake up and she’ll be 18!
The big difference this year is that Madam has some serious opinions about what she wants for her birthday and for Christmas and with them being so close together, we have to plan very carefully to ensure that she’s not disappointed on either her birthday or by Father Christmas.
This is her wishlist:
A mermaid outfit! Thankfully I’ve managed to track this one down on Amazon.com and a friend of mines Mom has bought it on our behalf as she lives in the US and bringing it to SA next week.
Yes, I know they’re freaky but Ava is totally taken with them and wants to unpack them every time we’re in Toys R Us! I know they’re hand made but almost past out at the price! Thankfully her Granny and Grandpa feel that they want to spend the R800 for the 13″ one for her. My Mom says she is their only grandchild and they will buy it for her if they want to. So ok, sorted!
I really loved this one, her name is Caroline and she reminds me a lot of Ava when she was a new born!
A Cabbage Patch Kid
but not just anyone, the I’m a Mermaid Cabbage Patch Kid, see a theme here?
A toy kitchen, which I’ve already decided will be A Hello Kitty one!
I’m hoping someone will buy her the matching kettle and toaster for her kitchen or a Hello Kitty pot set.
Other things she’s mentioned or shown interest in include puzzles, books, especially Dr Sues books, a swing ball, a dance mat, oh and lets not forget… a baby sister!
