to buy or not to buy... that is the question.

should I buy this for SweetPea? It's cute, but what will she do with it? but it's so cute! and only $15! I don't know...
(made by LGBrinkley on Etsy)

as you probably know from reading other posts, our little SweetPea is turning four next week. She's got a very fun personality, but it's making it hard to shop for her!

Here's a list of things she likes:

  • transformers, dragons
  • Harry Potter (hence the party)
  • watching and playing football
  • playing baseball
  • Seattle Seahawks
  • Taekwondo (she's a yellow belt)
  • doing art
  • her favorite color is camouflage, so anything camo colored
  • helping Mommy cook in the kitchen
  • playing outside
She does NOT like to wear things in her hair, and prefers people to say she's awesome instead of pretty. :)

Here's a list of the things she has asked for, repeatedly, for gifts:
  • a big drumset (I convinced her she wouldn't be able to reach the ground, so she's waiting until she grows " a liddle bit more" and will ask next year)
  • a microphone (since she'll have her big brother play the drums instead)
  • an Optimus Prime that's bigger than what she got from Santa
  • a bass guitar- to go with the drums and microphone
  • a camouflage bathing suit
  • a football
  • a sweetpea necklace from Etsy

so, I've decided to get her what's called a student drum, the kind she can put around her neck and march around with; one for the band beginners. I want to get her very own #8 Hasselbeck jersey, and a new purple baseball glove and bat. I did find a necklace that's more appropriate for her age too.

I'm still torn- that Sweet Pea dish is sooo cute! But really, what is she going to do with it?! What do you guys think...

Well, she likes to cook. Maybe it could be her own special serving dish? Looks like it might be just the size to put a few cookies on, or a muffin.

That's what came to mind for me.
