There are some gifts from my childhood that really stick out still today. This sometimes surprises me because these days it is hard to remember why I left one room to go to another sometimes. I blame that one on the kids, my mind is scattered now and my life is much busier than it used to be. I remember thinking Christmas is so far away, or my birthday or whatever holiday was coming up. They always took so long to arrive. Now they come and go before I am ready.
One of my favorite birthdays was the year I got a Lite Bright. I played with that thing all the time, it was so much fun. How great for the hand eye coordination and it kept me quite and busy for hours. I need to find a toy like that for my kids, they would never look away from a screen if I didn’t force them to. Another favorite was a jewelry box and of course barbies. How I loved to get barbies, I played with them so much. Then there were clothes, shoes, and dolls. Always fun for a girl to receive any of them. My kids all want expensive electronics. I will have to find some gifts that don’t require batteries or electricity and show them how fun that can be too.
