If you are lucky enough to have one or more babies in your family right now, you may be thinking about what you will get them for the holidays. After all, the holiday shopping season is fast approaching, and many people like to get all of their shopping done as early as possible to save themselves money and stress. Babies are one of life’s greatest delights, but the truth is that they can be hard to shop for, especially when they are very young. If you’re not sure how to shop for the littlest ones in your life, here are a few tips to help you get started.
The first thing to think about when you’re shopping for a holiday gift for a baby in your life is their parents. After all, the parents are the ones who will actually be opening the gift and they are the ones whose tastes really matter. If you want to be a hit with the parents, pick something for their baby that fits with their opinions and styles. For example, a Seahawks onesie would be perfect for sports fans from Seattle, or a little superhero shirt would be great for a fan of comic books.
Next, think about the baby and what he or she would enjoy. Of course, you can’t know any particular baby’s real tastes, and babies change every day, but use common sense to pick some appropriate. Don’t buy anything that a baby can’t safely play with, which means that it must be safe enough to put in their mouth. Choose something soft and snugly to make sure that a baby will want to hold it close and touch it often. Pick something bright and colorful to get his or her attention and delight.
Finally, don’t stress about it. The most important gift that you can give to any baby in your life is the gift of time. Take some time this holiday season to spend with all the little ones that you love.
As we prep to do our grocery shopping, dear husband was making a list…
S: What else do you want to add in the list, honey? Kaylen, do you need anything else from the grocery store? Ah, rice…check if you still have some rice left.
K: Rice. Definitely.
With the Tooth Fairy of Wylie Children’s Dentistry
It was one of the awaited event every Fall season-the Glow in the Park and Boo on Ballard Fall Festival in Wylie, TX every last Thursday of October. We always go every year. My darling daughter enjoys trick or treating and seeing some friends downtown.
Lots of activities and all the stores in Downtown Wylie participates in Trick or Treat. Glow in the Park is held at the Olde City Park while all the trick or treating and Fall festivities are held inside the downtown business area.

There were free hotdogs, water, and cotton candy, zip lining, bubble pit, face painting, barrel rides, and disco. Lots of fun! Almost everyone were in their best Halloween costumes. This year we got to see the Tooth Fairy. We weren’t able to catch her last year. Yay! K was very happy. The Tooth Fairy granted K some pixie dust. So sweet. 🙂
I am glad that we had a nice weather in this event. Last year’s was very chilly. We didn’t get to do the foam pit because I did not bring extra clothes for K. So she just spent most of the time in the playground. Then we ate hotdogs, tried out TCBY (The Country’s Best Yogurt) frozen yogurt place on Ballard Street and went home at 8:00 P.M.

It’s Red Ribbon Week at K’s school. Red Ribbon Week is schools’ campaign against illegal drugs. As part of the campaign, everyone in the school dresses up according to the approved daily dress up theme.
Wednesday-Wear something that will show future career
Thursday-School Spirit Day
Friday-No class (Professional Development for teachers and staff)
I had to go to Walmart on Sunday to buy a camouflage dress for Tuesday’s outfit. K said she wants a pink camo. There was no girls pink camo shirt in the store but I saw a girl’s pink camo dress. So I bought one and so delighted that it’s priced $3 .

Then last night was the last minute preparation for today’s career dress up. I asked K what her future job would be. Though she had a lot in mind, she was particular about being a doctor for animals. So veterinarian it is. She had a Doc McStuffins costume in her closet when she was 5. So I improvised that and created a stethoscope because her stethoscope toy was nowhere to be found.
