The Best Birthday Present for Toddlers



Last week, we celebrated the second birthday of my honorary niece, Georgie.

We went to her family’s residence for bagels and espresso, and the young ones ran all over underfoot. The toddlers obsessed above Toby — “Mommy, he’s a Teenager!” — and Anton persuaded me to let him attempt a cup of milky coffee. Meanwhile, Georgie wandered ghostlike as a result of the chaos with a vaguely nervous expression.

That night time, when we ended up all acquiring completely ready for bed, I mentioned to Anton, “I really do not think Georgie realized it was her birthday right now.”

To which Anton replied: “I do not believe Georgie understood it was *a* birthday nowadays.”

Haha, minimal little ones are the cutest/finest. Prior to going to the party, I experienced asked CoJ viewers for present suggestions for two-calendar year-olds. (It’s funny how immediately you forget about!) The #1 suggestion?

My daughter bought it two many years in the past, and the two our young children nevertheless serve us ice creams. just about every. solitary. working day.” Then Julie claimed: “We gave our two-calendar year-previous the Melissa and Doug ice cream set, and when her cousins, ages 5 to 14, had been about, they ALL performed with it!”

Other excellent suggestions?

But I came right here to point out that the best two-12 months outdated toy Ever is the Dyson perform vacuum that basically works. I really do not know why, but you really don’t concern a little something that perfect, you know?” — Jennifer

When she opened the box and the balloon floated out, she went wild! She grabbed the string and ran all in excess of the house and then invested considerably of the afternoon making an attempt to pull the balloon back again down into the box to reenact the opening with absolutely everyone at the social gathering.” — Shannon

And, last but not least, “it’s amusing since my go-to two-calendar year-old gift is the Melissa and Doug school bus you advisable ages ago, when Toby was minimal!” — Katie
