I thought it would be easy to buy a gift for Nate now that he is turning three (next Sunday) but I was in a quandary what to buy for him, a choice between books, toys or something he can wear. I was like a top toy on a slow spin while choosing what to buy for him that I know he would like. He loves toys but those race cars would only stay good for a few days then it would just be the remote control that is functioning. He loves caps and bonnets and face mask toys for kids. Make them all represent his favorite characters this side of the planet. Last year, his favorite was Mickey Mouse, he even had a Mickey Mouse designed cake on his second birthday then Nissa bought him a big Micky Mouse stuff toy (bigger than he was) for Christmas. Next thing I learned he loved Spider Man then it was Minion toys. He has two favorites though, two small plastic robots that he plays with when he is here. No harm with breaking except perhaps an arm twisted too much because he makes them fight each other. Next thing you know, he will probably be asking for an astronaut suit because being an astronaut is his dream at the moment. He was happy with the F1 racer suit that Nissa bought for him to wear last Halloween.
Sorry, I got lost there somewhere. After a few rounds of going here and there inside the children’s section of the department store, I finally found it. I know he would love this , he can use it when they travel. It’s unfortunate though that he can’t use it yet when they go up to Baguio tomorrow for a three-day trip. Maybe, he would be able to experience pony-riding again and enjoy a boat ride at Burnham Park. The cool weather there is just perfect for activities outdoors.
I was supposed to buy some Christmas gifts too for the family but I can’t stand Sunday when there are so many shoppers in all corners of the mall. I ended up buying a birthday gift and a Christmas gift just for him. It’s one item off my list.
Celebrating birthdays and Christmas, the heart is glad.
