Gavin has been invited to his first "friend" birthday party. This is a big deal around here because if you don't already know this about Gavin...he is a little socially awkward. He is kind of a stick to himself kind of kid. Don't get me wrong, he plays ok with his cousins and stuff and he has gotten better about it, but it has always been a struggle for him to make friends.
Well he got this invitation and it turns out it's for a girl, which was a surprise at first because its a Scooby Doo party. Not that little girls can't like Scooby Doo, I just don't know that many who do.
Anywho, so we have been discussing this little girl trying to figure out what she likes so we can get her a present (if anyone has any thoughts on the matter please let me know...she is turning 6) and Gavin says to me,
Gavin: "Mom, lets just get her flowers, cuz all girls like flowers right?" We train them early around here. "I mean remember when I got you those flowers (part of a mothers day gift) and you gave me a big hug and kiss."
Me: "Is that what you want from this girl, a big hug and kiss?"
Gavin: "Eeew, that's gross mom!"
Me: "Well, then maybe we better think of something else."
Gavin: "Yeah I guess we better!!!"
Gotta love 6 year old boys....AND we are back to square one on this gift thing. Seriously...any thoughts???
