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.
