Last week I went to the toy store to buy a birthday present for my son to take to a classmate’s party. Normally, buying a present isn’t an issue. If it’s for a boy, I usually get something my son is obsessed with such as Lego Hero Factory or Matchbox cars, because more times than not, his friends are just as obsessed too. However, this present was for a five-year-old girl. Uh-oh!
I have to say I was a bit stumped as what to get this little girl. She’s a girly girl, something I know nothing about, since I was a bit of a tomboy growing up. When I asked my son what I should get her, he told me that she “liked that Barbie girl.”
