More birthday pictures!
On the evening of Maya's birthday, Chris came home a little early from work so that we could give her presents from us and the grandparents. Most of these gifts came from Chris' trip to the US, hidden away for the last few weeks.

It was hard on Nadia! She totally gets that you get presents on your birthday, but the whole time she kept trying to convince us that it was her birthday too. Poor baby. Helping Maya open presents wasn't cutting it for her. And some of the things that Maya got were not suitable for Nadia to play with. Tears were shed. :-( But the next morning, after Maya went to school, Daddy gave her a little present (a Goliath plush from Jojo's Circus) as well and she was happy again.

Pixel Chix! Pixel Chix!

Maya had sent an email to Chris of things she wanted from the US. This was one of those things!
Kids Next Door figures! Kids Next Door figures!

Cute Pencil Sharpener! Cute Pencil Sharpener!

YAY! Good for pencils and colored pencils too!
Doodle Bear! Doodle Bear!

Another thing on her list from the US.
Cute dress! Cute dress!

Dresses were definitely on that list!
Big Girl Razor!! Big Girl Razor!!

WOW! Not one of those dinky three-wheeled scooter - Daddy went all out!
Uh.... Uh....

I think she wanted the three-wheeled one...she needs to learn to balance.
Nadia loves it! Nadia loves it!

Our little stunt rider.
We all dig it! We all dig it!

Daddy needs a helmet!
Mommy can ride it too! Mommy can ride it too!

Well, she can pose pretty good on it, at least.

Aaawww! Too cute! I love that pic of Nadia loving the scary scooter in contrast to Maya being a little bummed that it's a 2-wheeler. LOL

LOL those were cute! THe ones I liked the best were her new dress, and you and Chris trying out the new toys. I mean you were just testing them for stability and all, right?!

When's Nadia's birthday ? Was it possible to prep her during her birthday that Maya wasn't getting gifts, but when it was Maya's turn, she would be the one ? Perhaps she was too young that it couldn't have helped... ?

That is a sibling thing I've never had to face... I remember a birthday party when I was 4, but I don't remember presents. I remember my grandmother bringing old reel movies over and having a bunch of my friends over to watch them and a huge cake, and the fun cartoons... but I don't think I even have pictures of any gifts till later... like when I was 7.

Nadia's birthday was back in October, a little too long for such a lesson to stick in her mind. Thing is that, at this age, they don't quite get what a birthday really is. To them, it's just a time of parties and presents. No worries of getting older or thinking about what they have or have not's all about the celebration. And they want to celebrate everyday!

Payal recommended that I have a look at pics of your children, so you can blame her for this random post!

Looks like we've got a couple of friends in common too!

LOL Now that I am all caught up on Payal's LJ, I now recognize your LJ name. :-)

Welcome! Hope to see you visiting me more. And yes, we do have some friends in common. Cool!

Shall we just add each other then - the visits would be standard fare then!

Ditto! There's stuff in my memories section that might explain a bit (plus give you some visuals)

I wasn't on lj for about a year, so I'm just back recently, so not sure if you recognise me from 2004 and before, or not
priyabradfield From: priyabradfield Date: February 22nd, 2006 02:36 am (UTC) (Link)
No, I wasn't on LJ in 2004. I just started blogging a year ago. :-)
