We are in full swing preparing for a special little boy's birthday around here! (Gotta get started on that slideshow.....HEADACHE!) Even though his birthday isn't until July 9th, we're having his party early on June 19th due to family traveling and the upcoming vacation. I started thinking tonight about what Drew might want or need for his birthday. I have relatives asking, so I'm compiling a list of ideas...
At only $13, this is a definite for Mr. Drew's birthday. He has this crazy fascination and love for all microwaves, but the only one I can find in Target is pink and super cheap quality. This one has gotten great reviews, so Andrew and I are going to get this one for sure.
Crocs! Go ahead and talk about how they're ugly gardening shoes. Drew does not care! They're easy for him to get on and off and they're even easier to clean. He's worn his other ones out in about 8 months because he wears them every. single. day. Oh and the fact that one got run over by the truck tire sorta cause the near fatal demise of one shoes. Plus, these are only a few dollars more than the Target brand, but these seems so much more conforming to his foot. So for his birthday, another pair is in order!
It's no secret that my son has a love affair with the washer and dryer. If he comes to your house and spots your washer and dryer, he'll be stuck there for a while...unless you pry him away with a microwave. This set is only $25, but has pretty good ratings. (Hey, I don't expect it to be around forever!). Yes, I realize it's purple & pink.....but we could definitely settle.
This might be Mommy & Daddy's big (or only) gift for Drew depending....I'm crazy about this cute little house. It seems like it it's great quality and would be another outside toy for Drew to play in.
But then we threw around the idea of a sand & water table instead...I'm not sure about this.
1) Can we say MESSY? 2) Couldn't I just buy something to load some sand in instead and use a little $10 pool to hold the water?
I was thinking traditional red & yellow, but Andrew, however, is having a fit over this special edition Cozy Coupe...
Whew. So that's where we are so far. Pretty much pretend play, anything with a wheel, or anything to do with outdoors. There are three good hints as to things Drew loves! Do you have any suggestions on your kids' favorite toys around age 2? I'm open to suggestions (especially if you know of a great pretend washer!).
