Staying Stylish in Suburbia

Wish list

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

My oldest daughter was born in December. Yep. That means she's one of those kids who, instead of having it spread out throughout the year, gets a whole bunch of loot all around the same time. My husband and I have always been conscious about what she plays with, meaning that we try to veer away from loading her down with a bunch of junk just for the sake of giving her stuff. Instead I pay close attention to what she really likes and what holds her interest. For her birthday and Christmas presents this year I have compiled a list . It is both for my husband and I to reference and (as requested by them) for her grandparents to look over. I decided to share it on the blog today because who knows, maybe some of you have a toddler in your life that might also like a few of these goodies.

Looking over this list it strikes me what a broad range of interests these items represent. If what she loves at three years old is any indication of who she will become then I think I have a pretty well rounded kid on my hands. At this point she could become a doctor or architect who plays in a band, dabbles in photography, loves cooking for dinner parties and goes fly fishing on the weekends. Sounds like a good life to me!
