Ezy Roller and Other Fun Toys and Gifts

Just after spending on Christmas gifts and food last December, Fred and I had to think again what food to prepare and gifts to buy this January. Gabby and Sunday’s birthdays fall this month. My kids love receiving gifts, as most kids do. They still keep the catalogues from the toy stores and remind us that we haven’t bought them some of the toys that they like on those catalogues.

Whenever Christmas and birthdays come, Fred and I get a little bit worried because we know that Sunday would be receiving less number of gifts than Gabby. Most of Gabby’s godparents still give him toys while we lost contact of most of Sunday’s godparents. So whenever some of our friends who became Gabby’s godparents drop by at our house, we would either politely tell them to also prepare something for Sunday even if it’s just a bar of chocolate. Or we buy her toys, wrap them and pass them secretly to Gabby’s godparents to give to Sunday. But oftentimes, our friends are sensitive enough to buy gifts for both of them. :)

And when it’s our time to buy them their Christmas or birthday gifts, we always bring them along to make sure that they like what we buy them. Just last December, I asked Gabby if he wants something like Ezy Roller. Funny because Gabby said no but Fred said yes! Fred even said that if there was something like that for adults, he would buy one! :)

Buying gifts for Gabby is very easy. Robots, cars, and dinosaurs will always do. But buying for Sunday? She likes many things! She even likes robots! And I won’t be surprised if she would say yes to personalized pillowcases or nap mat which she can use on their 10am nap in school.

But always, I want to give Gabby and Sunday toys and all that they need. Just seeing the smile on their faces whenever they receive gifts is enough to forget those toys’ price tags!
