The kids were at my parents this evening and my mom just called to give me a tip about what Colette wants for Christmas. Here's a bit of their conversation according to my mom:
Grandma: Colette what do you want for Christmas?
Colette: A cow...a real one
Grandma: A cow? Why do you want a cow?
Colette: So I can be a farmer
Hmm, I think she'll be a bit disappointed. She's been a hard one to figure out what to get. Adrienne is very vocal about what she wants. The list changes, but when something is consistently on it for awhile I pay attention to those requests, so she's easier to shop for. Colette either wants every last thing she sees and so I can't discern what she is most interested in, or she doesn't say anything about anything so I'm still left guessing. When I realized a few weeks ago that Adrienne's gift tally was exceeding hers quite a bit I thought I'd better find out what she wanted. So I asked her, and she said she wants eyeglasses. Again, hmm. As far as trying to keep their gift tallies fairly even...I remember being a kid and paying attention to how many toys I got compared to my sibs, so as a parent I'm trying to avoid any drama ;-) But it's really not that hard because Adrienne's birthday is coming up so I can just set aside however many gifts I need to make it that way.
Anyway, baby's crying...toodles!
