Santa, Baby...Slip a Little Something Under the Tree, for Jack

Thursday, December 9, 2010

Tis the season!  I'm thrilled to say that I am, as of today, 99% finished with my Christmas shopping.  I started early and finished early.  Suffice it to say, visions of baby meltdowns at the mall kept me motivated and organized.

Jack won't be getting a huge present "from Santa" this year.  Do you know why?  Because he's nine months old and he doesn't know what Santa is or what presents are.  New things to play with are cool.  Yesterday, that was a Tupperware container.  I have decided to invoke Santa next year, when he will be sentient enough to know, hope, expect, and to maybe even leave out cookies and milk before he goes to bed.

I am not the Grinch; we do have a few excellent presents for Jack.  However, we have not gone overboard.

Speaking of going overboard, I just had to share a few gems that I found.  Even when Santa does start coming to our house with presents, you can be sure that he won't be stopping by with these things:


For your favorite non-walker?  Burberry baby booties, available here.
It's called a scallywag sloop, and you can buy one here.


Yup, it's a BMW.  Click here to add this to your family's fleet.

His name is Jerry the Giraffe, and you can buy him here.

  1. Holy crap. That pirate ship is awesome. You're getting him that for next year, right?

  2. We have the same philosophy on gifts for Gabe. We have one "big" gift for him and some books and stuff. We will do it up next year when he is aware. Yes, new things to check out are awesome...doesn't have to be an actual toy. Last night Gabe found out that the metal tablespoon measurer makes a cool sounds when banged on the kitchen floor.
