Black Friday is coming up…

That means Christmas shopping will be starting up soon.

I’ve got my list, and I’m pretty sure we can find gifts for everyone on the list.. I just have one that I’m unsure of..

Little M.

This is her second Christmas.  She’s fully aware of how to open gifts, play with toys, play with boxes, play with paper.. etc. 

But what am I going to give her? 

My parents are most likely going to get here that Rockstar Elmo that plays the drums and sings songs.  M loves watching Elmo sing whenever we find ourselves in the toy aisle.

I was going to get her the first and second season of The Fresh Beat Band and both CDs of their music.

But, I can always let her watch episodes off of Netflix.. so why spend the money on the DVDs?!?

She’s also very much into Dora the Explorer.. so I can probably find something for her Dora-related..

I just don’t know what to get her..

I think I’m going to have to take her to Toys R Us and let her roam the aisles so I can see what sort of toys she is drawn to.  Then I can make my selection from there..

How did you decide what to give your toddlers for Christmas?

Ok.. it’s October.. but it’s never too early to start planning for Christmas.

It seems like every year our list grows and grows.. this year is no exception.. with the addition of several babies into my circle of friends and family..

I think I’ve said it before, but I’m a terrible gift giver.  I’m the type of person that would rather be told what the recipient wanted than having to guess myself.  I always feel that I guess wrong.

Granted, I have been getting better over the years.. but sometimes I put way too much thought into the gift that I stress myself out!

I need to start compiling my gift list..

This is going to be Little M’s second Christmas.. she’s old enough this year to open gifts, but I think she’s still to young to understand “Christmas.”  I’d love to do the Santa thing with her, but I still think she won’t understand..

When did you start doing the Santa thing with your little one?
