Help!!! I'm stuck and don't know what to get!
So not so little Mr J is turning 9 next week!..... NINE YEARS OLD HOW?!
Of course to make things 'easier' for me, Wen I asked him what he'd like his reply came ..... 'I dunno surprise me!'
Oh how that felt like a snippet of our future when he's a teen.
So yes I'm stuck. I mean what do you get a child has most things?!
Last year wasn't too bad as he'd learnt of Skylanders so e wanted Skylanders Giants which we got him, as well as a few other little bits and some clothes. we always buy them half clothes half toys for their birthday as they just get so much and they always need clothes.
His birthday we just cooked him his favorite tea of homemade Lasagna followed by cake which meany Daddy squished in is face... But oh how we laughed!
Then he wanted a sleepover, Eek our first ever sleepover I must be mad, So the Friday a couple days after his birthday we did that.
We started the afternoon after school his best friend and my younger son Mr K's best friend who happens to be the boys younger sister came with their mum.
I ordered pizza followed by birthday cake and they had fun playing!
At 6pm my friend and her daughter went and Mr J's friend stayed so they got into their pj's and played some more, They loved playing soldiers with their inflatable swords they got in their party bags.
Then they played some sort of lions game....My this was LOUD!
They played some other games and ate cake.
Then by 8pm which was surprisingly early I thought they'd have me up late, They wanted to play in their room. As Mr J was now 8 and had his friend over the party was now over for little Miss L.. Well kind of!
I set the boys up a 'secret den' in their bedroom where they sat with books torches and DVD's.
Whilst the boys were in their hideout little Miss L and I 'pampered' each other with facemasks.
So yes overall last year was a good one! This year I haven't got a clue... Which is were you guys come in,
So Mr J loves learning, Maths and puzzles, Reading, Gaming,TMNT - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Doctor Who to name a few.
So given this if YOU had a child turning 9 what would you chose?
Comment and let me know?!
