Oldest son’s birthday is coming up. Hubby and I have decided to get him a balance bike, as he is only turning 2. Well, we had supper at MIL’s house the past weekend to celebrate BIL’s birthday. People ask what we are getting son, and I tell them. MIL’s BF instantly says, “OH! Don’t worry, I will get him one!!!” He then proceeds to start talking about his new job and how it will be stupid easy for him to get a bike, “heck, he can probably have one by the weekend……” BF apparently started another NEW job working for an Ebay power seller….. whatever that means. Apparently this guy thought averages $30K a month. Blah, blah, blah. I don’t care. I know that you are excited and want to help but please let us get our son his bike. I ask this because I have done hours of research and asking other mom’s about which bike and why. I have a VERY SPECIFIC bike in mind. Plus I said WE ARE BUYING IT at the beginning. I know he means well, but how do I say DON’T BUY A FUCKING BIKE!!!????
Son is going to be so overwhelmed at his birthday as my parents are coming and bringing my old kitchen centre from when I was little. Heck, that is ALL the toys he needs. We are very fortunate and have a basement of amazing toys from our friends that they have handed down to us that he doesn’t know exist yet. I know that everyone just gets excited and means the best, but seriously PLEASE DON’T BUY HIM ANY TOYS!!!!! I swear that if people get him any toys for his birthday that I am just going to put them away and donate them at Christmas time. Why is it sooooo hard to give him money for his RESP like we ask for each birthday and holiday???
I don’t know how to shout from the rooftops that NO MORE TOYS!!!
Oh, and it’s official, we are also hosting Christmas dinner at our house.
A) Shoot me now.
B) At least dinner will be eatable
C) Not making my munchkins travel at Christmas as they will be 2.5years and 11months old and the babies of the family. #stopmakingthebabiescometoyou
