One of Those Things

Peanut Butter's birthday is quickly approaching and like the good mom I am I haven't done or purchased a thing. Peanut Butter has been so obsessed with the George birthday cake, that I haven't gotten any ideas out of her on what to get her for her birthday. A gal I work with suggested one of those battery operated jeeps that her grandson just loves. I flat out said no. She asked why and I said she will have it on the street and she cannot steer those things. It so happened we stopped over at our friends that afternoon and they have one for their daughter and PB hopped in and attempted to drive the thing. At one point a little boy that is in her daycare class was driving and she was riding and they crashed into the house, he bounced off the windshield and ended up with a shiner. It was confirmed no Jeep. I was perusing amazon last night looking for birthday gifts. I found the fisher price pirate ship. Peanut Butter was in love. It has become her new obsession. Last night at bedtime, she said, "Mama, I wanna George birthday cake and pirates." It is now nonstop as soon as I walked in the door from work, "Mama, I see pirate ship pleeeease." I brought the page up and she had to watch the video about 100 times. One week of this left, oy. I'm also considering getting the leapster or the leapster2. I don't know if any of you have one, if you do, do you recommend it. PB is into sitting and pretending to play games with her brother, so I thought this might be neat for her. Hopefully, I can get to ToysRus Wednesday.

Oh my gosh, yeah, I'd veto the jeep too if I saw that happen. My kids loved their Leapster. I bet PB would love it!

Love the pirate ship so cool!! Em has a leapster and she's always played with it--at first she didn't quite get it but now she does. But she always loved it-its a good gift that I am sure PB will love!! (big kid toy)

I nixed the Jeep for the same reason! My parents got Cooper a Leapster for his birthday this year. He really enjoys playing with it, though he won't really let me sit down with him and explain how some of the games work. On most days I am still shocked that he will sit quietly and play with it for a good 20 minutes!

My girls each had a leapster and really liked them, I think it is a good age and M would probably like it! My girls loved the "puppy" game that you can buy.
