Lots of remaining birthday cake, which we decided to freeze, so we can enjoy it at a later date, and not overindulge at the moment. This doesn't phase Seth because he totally loves the Mallomars we also had at the party....and he's enjoying those leftovers this week.
But.....while Seth is ok on the cake front....he is overindulging big time on the firetruck front.
Of the friends that asked what to buy Seth for the occasion, I told them no moving vehicles, since he already has more than his share. Several bought books, among other cool items, which was appreciated. Others, knowing he is a wannabe fireman, bought him firetrucks, fire stations, etc. They meant well, of course, but now we have a dilemma.
I tried to hide some of them hoping he might forget.....but he has a photographic memory....and every day after school wants to open more 'n more gifts.
What's a mom to do? If I hear one more siren.........
And, on another note....which will be a future Blog....Seth is an only child (as a 40+ mom, we don't plan on more)....so no doubt he's already super spoiled in the toy department........but does that give us the right to withhold birthday presents from him?
Feel free to weigh in on this. Would love to hear your thoughts!
