Birthday Presents

Among the things to do before I leave lies the job of "buy the kids' birthday presents". Yes, I officially lose the Father of the Year award as I'll be gone for both kids birthdays.

Kaden's lobbying pretty hard for a skateboard.

And Ainsley, the last time I asked what she'd like for her birthday, thought she might like to have a doughnut. I did remind her that a doughnut is a snack and probably not a great birthday present. Her next choice? A carrot. And you just know that she won't be pleased if we get her a carrot even though she explicitly asked for one. Three-year-old just don't have that kind of a sense of humour.

Oh and we did wills today. As is "This is the last will and testament of... being of sound mind etc..." There's a depressing way to spend 40 minutes with a lawyer. However, it does check one of the most important things of the list so, I feel better.

Next up, still need to find pants. I know, it doesn't quite have the same gravitas as The Will. However, I'm considerably more stressed out by this one.

10 more sleeps.

We did that too, when we both flew to England. Updated our will. And left a key to the safety deposit box with our son. (he said, whats the problem, if you die. I will have the house cleaned out before any of my siblings get here) Gotta love that boy. He's a chip off somebodys block, who I am not sure. When you come back, tell me you loved watching a lion take down a kill. So, this is why your other blog is dead.
