Last weekend was Alex’s 8th birthday. She had a sleepover party with 4 friends and a sort of pirate theme.
She knew she was getting a new bike because she had outgrown her old one and we ended up getting it at the end of May. But I also wanted to get her a little surprise. About 6 weeks before her birthday I had no idea what she was really into. I know she likes to read, play with her dollhouse and do arts and crafts but other than that I didn’t know if there was something that she really liked. Of course, then I doubted my parenting abilities but between school, activities and the time she spends with her father we don’t have all that much time together.
So, I asked her.
