We’ve got 2 birthdays and Easter coming up and a kid on a no-milk, no-wheat, no-eggs elimination diet. What about the birthday cake?!?
Not only do I not know what to do about the cake, I also don’t know what to do about the gifts. It’s not like Rosie has a list of presents that she wants to receive. Anyhow, she and her sister are not lacking for toys and books. It’s just that I know Rosie’s old enough to remember this birthday. I know because Lizzie remembers her 2nd birthday party and talks about it sometimes, comparing her 2nd b-party to her 3rd b-day party -which party was better, who the guests were, which party had more balloons. I can’t gyp Rosie out of her birthday just because it falls near Easter, because she is allergic to everything, because she doesn’t need anything, and because she is probably too little to figure it out. Can I?
Lizzie on the other hand has a list of presents long enough for the 2 of them. On the top of her list is a big-kid bike. And it has to be pink. Next, she wants a dollhouse, the big wooden kind with lots of little pieces. She has also expressed interest in a bucket of dinosaurs which I think she has seen on TV recently. Her latest request is for a Robur. Yes, a Robur. If you don’t know what a Robur is, it is a bus produced in the former East Germany. If you are wondering how Lizzie knows about it, it is because someone in our neighborhood has one. Unfortunately, that someone isn’t us.
Our neighborhood’s Robur
And why does she want a Robur for her birthday? That was my exact question, too.
Here’s the Robur that Lizzie wants.
It’s the Peppa Pig Robur not the East German one ;) Quite nice, actually.
Happy (almost) Birthday to my baby girls!
