OK Readers. I need your help. Our God son turned 10 this month and we have a party for him on Friday night. I am completely stumped as to what to get him, so reaching out in the world to parents, grandparents, and other bewildered aunties on what a boy this age will like. I nabbed a pretty cool basketball reversible shirt for him at a sale my daughters company was holding earlier in the month. Cash seems odd for a child this young, but what do I know anymore? I could just do a movie gift card, enough for him and a buddy to see a matinee, but then it becomes a chore for his parent to bring him and said friend. What's the hot topic books boys this age are reading now? Any great ideas, or even mediocre ones, please comment.
Wedding and shower gifts seem pretty easy with registries, and well, lots of life experience to know what items are needed. Baby showers in particular, adding some of the pricey disposable items are well received as the parents to be have no doubt started calculating all the bits that will now be part of their shopping habits. The gift giving gray matter for me is kids between eight and 13, and older adults. Teen boys that I don't know well, were difficult as well, for things like the family services gift collections, but readers came through with lots of suggestions there.
April 27th. I took pup out about 20 minutes ago and the air was crisp, but it wasn't raining and looked like it could be a decent if not cold day. Then I heard DD2 from her room just now. "Is it snowing?" Sure enough, flakes were starting to come down, and now have picked up the pace. I doubt any will stay as the ground is so wet and I think it is above freezing, but it will make for some slick roads. Enjoy your day and pop in your gift giving thoughts, and your thoughts on snow on April 27th.
