OK, James' birthday is right around the corner and I just can't decide between these two big gift ideas:
The first is a Step 2 Playground Climber. He just loves the playground in our community, but every time we go there are loud, obnoxious pre-teens, and graffiti, and trash, so I would like to have something for him in the backyard.
My other idea is an easel/art center. I found this one and think it is pretty cute. I am thinking that this would help me keep him entertained while I am working (as I have been relying too much on the tv and you know how I hate that.)
Of course, as Chris points out, it is getting hotter here, and I won't want him playing on the playground set during the day when it is 110+. (And, I will be indoors working, so maybe the easel is a better idea?) But, I can do the same thing setting him up on the coffee table or the kitchen table with supplies, right??
Both cost about the same.
All you Moms and Dads out there, I need you to weigh in on this for me!! Thanks a bunch!
