Birthdays / Primrose

Prim’s Birthday Wish List (or, what I would like to buy her, but won’t)

Prim’s birthday is now less than two weeks away, and even though we already bought Prim a gift (which she won’t receive for at least another month because it’s currently packed away with our stuff, sailing on the high seas to the Netherlands), I keep seeing adorable items that I would love to buy her.

I totally get why people go overboard with things for their kids. It’s so easy. Everything is so tiny! So adorable! Not quite as expensive as adult things! (Usually.)

We’ve been very good about keeping Prim’s toy situation to a manageable level — and proof positive that babies don’t need much to be entertained, almost all of Prim’s toys were packed up and shipped weeks ago, and does she care? Not in the slightest. Give this girl an old magazine to tear apart and she’s good.

The list below has nothing to do with what Prim actually wants for her birthday (because, let’s face it, what Prim really wants is to be able to go through the bathroom garbage and to play in Penny’s dog bed. Heaven!)

Here’s really what I have my eye on for Prim’s birthday (but won’t be buying her):

The cutest floppy mouse doll.

An adorable (and totally impractical for Amsterdam) summer dress.

And even though I thought they were a little frivolous, I have to say that these shoes are the best — so soft, and they actually stay on! She wears them almost daily.)

A totally unnecessary (but oh so cute!) baby bonnet.

And finally, a rattle to remind her of her home state. ♥
