So I REALLY wanted to get Megan a children’s recliner for her 2nd birthday present. I finally found one I wanted, and I just HAD to order it right away (a strange personality quirk, but that’s the way I am). Also, you never know how long things will take to ship, or if they get lost or are on back order, etc. etc. etc. So I ordered Megan’s chair about 4 months in advance. Well…it arrived today – 3 months before her 2nd birthday.
Another strange personality quirk, if you will, is that I DO NOT like to wait to give gifts. It drives Adam crazy, and he hardly ever gives in when I want to receive/give something early. After an inward struggle (I mean I REALLY struggled) I finally decided I wanted to give it to her today anyway. Adam complied (especially because she has another gift from us down in the garage that has been there for OVER a month and I have been able to resist giving it to her thus far – and I WILL be able to hold out until her birthday in June…) Anyway, Megan absolutely LOVES her new chair! She was laughing and squeaking and was just sooooo excited!
I know I will have to be more patient with giving gifts in the future. Of course I want her to realize her birthdays are special, and although she probably won’t even realize what’s going on, we will still celebrate her 2nd birthday in a blaze of glory. After all, we DID start celebrating 3 months early! So HAPPY BIRTHDAY MEGASAURUS!
