3 years, 10 months.
Your birthday (November 16th) and Christmas are just a little more than a month apart. So all year, Mommy and I have been preparing by secretly scouting out the clearance section at Target, as well as and Amazon.com for ridiculously good deals.
Over all, we only paid a fraction of the cost of what your birthday and Christmas gifts should have amounted to.
For the past several months, these mysterious brown boxes have been waiting for us on our doorstep when we get home…
This week, Mommy and I finally laid all your upcoming gifts out on the floor to evaluate the situation, officially verifying that we are now finished with buying both your birthday and Christmas gifts.
I am so excited about you opening these! I can’t wait to be able to sit down with you and play.
Let’s talk about that anteater…
As I recently mentioned, you have a peculiar fascination with anteaters; as seen in your picture of the anteater who ate a monster. (I love how the monster who was eaten by the anteater is just as happy as the anteater who ate the monster!)
You have been asking for an anteater stuffed animal for quite a while now. So Mommy special ordered one of the Internet. It looks so bizarre!
But I’m confident to believe you will love it. Mommy and I wondered if your anteater will end up in the same privileged category as Ellie the Elephant and Pandy the Panda Bear, who get to ride in the car with you and wear your underwear to school.
We also wonder what you will name him/her. My guess is “Anty.” I guess we’ll see in about two months for your 4th birthday.
Anty very well could be wearing your underwear to school.
