Wow! It's been over a month since I've posted - oh dear!!
Quick update on toddler life:
1) Being 3 is hard.
2) Daddy's make good "bad guys" but also the best "P.I.C."
3) Getting a 3 year old who has never slept a whole night in his life to sleep takes persistence, patience and a routine but IS possible (we are on night three of 11 hours of uninterrupted sleep)
4) Napping is for adults too.
We have had a lot going on the last several weeks and I foresee a lot more chaos in the near future but, it's going to be OK. We got a new washer and dryer last weekend - BEST thing we could have ever gotten! If you need new ones I highly recommend the Samsung 4.2cu Washer and matching Dryer. We got them on sale and what is usually a full day of laundry (6-7 loads) was only 3 loads!!
Anyways, I got a jump start on my Christmas shopping this year (I was pretty much done by November 1st) and I wanted to share some of the things I got that are my favorite...we overdid it...
Playmobils - I loved them as a kid and scored a few deals online so I got the advent calendar and some small sets for stocking stuffers.
Spiderman Action Figure - on sale at Target!
Accessories - Oddly, Bear really likes boy accessories (like cool superhero pins) so I got a bunch of those, a skull velcro belt (which is the best invention ever) and a hat
Spiderman Sweatshirt - it has a pull down mask in the hood!
Modular Race Track Set - I chose this over hotwheels because it was on sale and it came with a lot more pieces that go in a lot more different ways and works with matchbox cars too.
Lanard Engine Overhaul Set - This is the coolest of everything! It's a toy engine with working parts that you can take apart and "fix". Bear loves helping Daddy in the shop so we thought this would be perfect.
Train Set - Tim picked out one on ebay that is battery controlled and like 35 feet of track so that will be fun around the tree!
I got almost everything on Zulily - I recommend signing up they have awesome deals on kids stuff, women's stuff and stuff for the home. I also always use Ebates for extra cash back :)
What are you planning for under the tree?
