My kids are grown... well, the youngest is 15 and isn't all that fun to shop for Christmas gifts anymore. Give him money and he's a happy camper.
So this year, as with last year, I have adopted a child from Salvation Army. We're given a list with their names, age and sizes, and asked to buy Christmas presents for them. I am having a ball doing that.
Boss #1 has also adopted a child, but given me the responsibility of buying for her (a 2 year old girl), and the ex Boss #2 has adopted three (count em 3!) and has also asked me to do the shopping for them. So I have 5 small kids to shop for and I'm having a ball. I tend to go for the loud toys, the ones I know the parents wouldn't want to buy them. I found a remote control car the other day that played low rider music while it bounced up and down. Pure culture I tell ya. I also hit the Macy's sale and got them all coats.
The deadline is December 11 and I still have some shopping to do. When I have grandkids I am going to be completely out of control, I can just tell. hehe
