Grand Kinda Day
After breakfast yesterday morning I had all 3 toddlers for a few hours, oh my! Ha Between the mosquito's and heat we spent most of the time in the house, double, oh my! Ha They really are good little kiddo's but man are they a handful. One of the biggest problems is keeping them feed. Morning snack was watermelon, cheese, banana's, ravioli, Popsicles, and vanilla wafers. Where do they put it all?
After DD#1 picked her two up I was looking forward to joining Kara for a little nap. Well that didn't happen :( What the heck, we loaded up for a trip to Target. We were in need of another baby for the doll houses before the little girls revert to bloodshed over the one we have.
As with each time I take one of the grands out for a special surprise they always want to get the others something. Kara picked out a mini Dora for the playhouse, just as I was pushing the cart away she says "stop Nanny, one for sissy too" aww, of course we got sissy one as well. Off to the checkout counter. "No Nanny, baby Mason too", how could I forget. Then it was on to the Lego's for a mini set for Tyler.
I am wondering if hubby and I are teaching these little guys to have the heart of a giver or the heart of a spender. What do you think? We don't really take then to stores much as we both HATE shopping but sometimes we want to take them out for a special treat, it always turns out the same way. We buy a little something for the one we have with us but always get suckered (not hard to do) in for buying for all.
I LOVE that they always think of each other. When I do any baking with them they have a great time putting together a container to take home and a second container for their cousins, same thing with crafts. They aren't old enough yet to know or understand that we donate their no longer used toys and clothes to others but that day will come in time. I know kiddo's learn by example, they get LOTS of examples of giving in our home and their own but I sometimes wonder if I should say no to buying toys for the ones that are not with us on the special outing.
What do you think?
