When you have 2 children the amount of toys after birthdays and Christmas is INSANE I actually asked for no toys from some family members at Christmas as they girls play with each others toys as they are so close in age (2&4) so they have more than enough between them. But Birthdays are a different thing as it’s their own day and not one they have to share, well in theory! The girls birthdays are just 2 weeks apart so we have lots of new things coming into the house aagghhh! No room at the in thou haha!
Olivia’s main present and one she has asked for is a bike! Something I wanted to get her at Christmas but it’s the wrong time with the dark nights and snow etc so this is the perfect time to get her riding. She has a teddy (well Minnie Mouse soft toy) that she takes absolutely everywhere so we want to get one with a doll seat on the back for her and a basket on the front for any other 4 year old essentials!
She is very much a girly girl and loves pink and princess and dressing up so I thought a tutu would go down very well for and they look so cute in photos too, not that I take many, just around 20-30 a day (ooppss!)
Orchard games are a firm favourite in our house too and at Olivia’s pre school and she had been asking for the cupcake game for a few weeks now, they play it at school and normally I like to try and steer away from having the same things so she has plenty of variety but she has asked so many times and hopefully it’s something Bethany-Rae can learn in time to play with her too.
Beauty and the beast toy was obviously needed due to the party theme (see previous post) and she only has Belle so having the little figures to will be something extra to play with and she really is into role play at the moment with her little dolls etc.
And last but not least the butterfly garden is something Iv been looking forward to doing with the girls this summer for so long, I never did anything like this when I was younger, I was into horses and only horses haha! But they are both at such a fabulous inquisitive age so I really want to enjoy it with them and learn together about new things.
Especially now as Olivia will be starting “big school” in September, but that’s for a future post and one filled with many emotions…
