They are even more lucky to have both sets that both spoil them rotten! I have a rubbish memory, so couldn't tell you exactly how spoilt, or not, I was personally, but I am fairly certain I wouldn't come close to my two girls in the 'being spoilt' contest.
My girls are now 4 years and 6 years old respectively. The youngest turned 4 this weekend. She received all manner of gifts, from us, from her family and from her friends. By far the two biggest gifts, and I mean biggest quite literally, were the 8 foot trampoline that it took my husband and I four hours; in the garden, until 11pm at night, in the dark; to construct. It was worth it for the look on her face when she aw it!
We thought that the 'construction' involved for this birthday was finished. Not so. I should have known better.
My mum (and dad; though I don't think he has much say in the matter) have a lovely tendency to buy large single gifts rather than a selection of smaller toys. The slide and see-saw/bouncy/roundabout combo that are both gracing our garden both came from them.
This time they outdid themselves. They bought my younger a village shop.
A village shop that takes over half of the room!
You should have seen the look on my husbands face as more and more of it was constructed yesterday afternoon by my husband and dad together (amazingly they didn't punch each other).
As it happens, we've been able to move an entire IKEA storage unit out into the loft, as the contents are now all in the village shop. It does provide some fabulous storage. It took us all most of the afternoon to rearrange the room to accommodate it though. My mum left us to it, giggling as she went.
But the thing I like most about it, is that it's wooden, not plastic. So much better, don't you think?
