My daughter’s tenth birthday is next week. I’ve already made her a few things like the knitted voodoo doll. The head, body and limbs are complete. I’ll put it together once she’s asleep.
Earlier this morning, I purchased a few items for her…
Such as this adorable Monster High Collapsible Trunk. Judging by the reviews… it’s large and will fit nicely at the foot of my daughters bed. I do think I’ll make it more sturdy by adding a liner inside the trunk and sewing it to the trunk. My daughter will love it since it features her much loved Monster High dolls. I like it since it neatly keeps her items in one place. The Monster High trunk will arrive on her birthday.
My daughter loves the Monster High dolls and over the past few years I’ve purchased several for her. She doesn’t have any of the boy Monster High dolls. People snap them up quickly and sell them for well over $100! There’s no way I’m paying that much for a doll that cost a few dollars to make. But this morning I found a male doll, Monster High Deuce Gorgon for $30. I haven’t seen him that low in months and so I quickly bought him. Since he was only $10 more than I’d pay if I could find him in the store.
My daughter loves to draw and she likes computers and has been wanting to digitize some of her sketches and so I think the Wacom Splash Tablet is the perfect beginner tablet for her. Initially, I was going to purchase this for her at Christmas time, but I held off since I felt she had enough for Christmas. But, I added it to my Amazon Wish List knowing that one day I’d eventually purchase it for her. Well guess what? I checked this morning and the price had dropped by $10 since Christmas! I’m an Amazon Prime member and decided to go with next day delivery for the Monster High doll and the Wacom tablet. They’ll be here tomorrow so I don’t have to worry about them arriving by her birthday.
My daughter doesn’t expect a lot for her birthday. She knows that what you receive isn’t really that important and she seems to be truly happy with whatever she gets which is nice. The main way I show her how much she means to me is spending lots of time with her. But to make her birth date “extra special” I try to do additional things for her. I can’t wait to see the look on her face when she receives her gifts. She’s such a wonderful daughter smart, loving, and enjoys sharing with others. It’s nice when I can do extra special things for her throughout the year.
