The night of my daughter's birthday party my son was rolling around in his bath when he said, mom, I forgot to get N a birthday present this year. Thats alright, I'll get her one next year. Don't worry I won't forget next year, I'll get her a present. He kept repeating this sentiment over and over in about as may ways as the english language would let him. Overall I felt patetic, its the mom's job of helping siblings buy a present. I thought about it, but then decided she has too many presents for a baby, and that he wouldn't wouldn't even notice anyway. Wrong, he totally noticed.
