Where did the time go? It seems like yesterday that I was going through 20 hours of labor. This is the 2nd milestone birthday of her life and I’m not sure who is more excited; me or her. Yet, I’m a little sad too. I want to keep her as a child forever.
I’ve been planning this particular birthday for a couple of months now. I want it to be extra special so we’re having a big birthday party; last year we celebrated at Disney World so I knew it would be heart to top. So far so good…
The one thing that I couldn’t get past was, “What am I going to get her for her birthday?” She really is a little girl who has just about everything. I’ve confessed to spoiling her – she’s my one and only and my special miracle baby who is worth the world to me.
I started looking around on the World Wide Web for some ideas and came across gifts that aren’t ‘the norm’, but absolutely adorable; some where just down-right neat. I felt like I had been missing out.
Then, it dawned on me that perhaps I’m not the only Mom that didn’t realize that these gifts existed.
That’s when my personal blog became the host of the Unconditional Mom 2010 Birthday Gift Guide: For Children. Now, for legality purposes I want to mention that this has absolutely nothing to do with ModernMom.com other than I’m writing about what is taking place on my personal blog.
I’ve decided to host various contests on my blog that are being sponsored by countless companies – everything from Hasbro to a company called Zooni.
The concept is to give parents an idea of where to find original gifts or gifts that just stand out above ‘the norm’. Companies are submitting their product(s) for review and contributing an extra for my readers to win them…and lots of them!
Even more neat, for a lack of better verbage, is that my daughter is hand picking a lot of them out. So, in essence, it’s giving our readers the opportunity to see what children actually like which really makes this particular Birthday Gift Guide: For Children stand out as I’m confident Alexis, my daughter, has great taste.
We want to share what she’s getting with our readers and wanted to let you all know about it, too. So without further ado, you are all cordially invited to my personal blog for the 2010 Birthday Gift Guide: For Children.
Simply click the image below to visit and have fun! After all, it is her 5th birthday, but she’s sharing the gifts with you, too!
While you’re there, don’t forget to check out the contests for adults, as well; including the opportunity to win 1 of 10 gift baskets from Cottonelle.
