Go Speed Racer

Let me just start by saying that this was all Mom’s idea. We took Sydney to Toys ‘R Us today to pickup a few early birthday gifts. I took Syd straight over to the Barney section because I knew that would be a quick win and we could get back home to watch Jeff Gordon win today! So I pulled down this Barney doll that was one and a half times Sydney’s height and she freaked out. She ran away from him!

So Mom took Sydney over to the cars and picked out this handsome new ride. I think it matches the #24 DuPont Chevy’s paint scheme a bit.

Notice the hands on the steering wheel. She loves to hold on and go fast. Could this be the first female Nextel Cup champion?

After her big day of driving, Sydney played with Krista, our neighbor. Sydney is just now figuring out that we have young girls living on both sides of us and they are pretty cool to watch and play with. Krista had a lemonade stand today that made $9. To put that in perspective, she was selling 10 cent cups of lemonade. I think it was the tips.

So next weekend is Syd’s first birthday and its Mother’s Day. Man, I am out of ideas. What do you get for 2 girls that have everything? I need help!

    Brandon, just a thought but maybe you could give Sydney a sister or brother that is something that she doesn’t have yet! Not sure what Kim will say about your “gift” to her though…..

  • You keep your opinions to yourself woman…how do I delete comments? 🙂

    I think that a nice little brown UPS truck with a #88 on the side would be a really nice present for Syd. How about a nice day spa for Mom!

  • The last time I bought Mom a spa day she spent my gift certificate and then another 2x that amount.

    Hey I agree with Grandma Carole!! What a great gift.
