Best Gifts to the Not-The-Best-Person

There are many lists out there for the gift ideas for children.  How about children of parents you don’t like? Parents that annoy the heck out of you… or parents that you just want to punch out (oh admit it, you must know someone like that) but you don’t because you’r enot setting a good example to your children.

You can take this as “Gifts Not Recommended for Parents” or gifts for parents you don’t like.  I think I will get more ideas if I write under the latter context though.

Oil Pastels – these are like crayons, but they are not as children friendly.  They are oily and it’s a real pain to get it off the walls, leather couches, and carpets when smudged.

Playdoh – self explanatory.   Good bye walls and carpets.

Felt Markers – Good bye walls and tabletops!

Electronic Toys w/o the Batteries but require lots of the big expensive batteries

A Pet – it’s a gift that keeps on giving… until it dies.

Candy – kids bouncing off the oil pastel decorated walls.

First half of a movie, don’t bother burning the second half, they can find it themselves.

This is just some humour, I hope parents won’t actually give these items with these intentions. 😉

Sesame Street on Crack

I can’t stop watching YO GABBA GABBA‘s videos on Youtube. It’s so fun and the tunes are so addictive. Here is one of my favourite clips, it makes me want to throw down cardboard and host a baby dance off.

Special Guest – DO IT… go go go Do It! go go go Do It! Hilarious.

I don’t know what it is about Baby Einstein clips that are award winning, but their shows put me to sleep!

An Angel with Cute Horns

The best time of the day is when Little Patch is deep asleep during the morning.  His schedule is currently whacked as he has days and nights mixed up.  As much effort as we put to set a proper schedule, there are things that come up that resets it such as vaccine shots, visiting relatives and other things.

I love watching my angel sleep as he looks so so sweet that I just want to kiss him, hug him, or poke him! I should know better to wake him up when most babies should be awake, but I end up staring at him like a creepy stalker for a long time.

His morning sweetness makes me forget what a brat he is when he refuses to sleep at 3am the night before… that’s the price I have to pay when I let LP sleep in so that I can stare at him.
