Birthday

My youngest daughter's new boyfriend is asking her what she wants for her birthday. He has money. But she buys what she wants. She is stumped. I suggested beginning a collection of diamonds. But neither one of us really likes diamonds. (Yeh, I get vicarious pleasure out of these things!)

A fur coat? In Florida, no, besides we can't be responsible for killing animals. A TV? She has a huge one in her room. Pets, oh, heaven, please no! I suggested a monthly visit to the spa for a year. But she wants something tangible to remember him by, should she need to remember. Ha ha. Who knows where this is all going? Is she arm candy? Is it true love? Ah, stay tuned in.

A trip to romantic Costa Rica? Neither he nor she can get away from the medical field without massive planning involving time.

I think its very nice he asked, rather than rushing out to get something HE thinks she should have. This is a good sign that he MIGHT not be a control freak.

Do I sound like a Mother? Yes, I do. An obnoxious one. But mothering never ends. Never.

A Temporpedic bed with 1000 count sheets?

A pair of rediculously expensive shoes or boots?

The newest and bestest laptop?

No, mothering never ends, it just gets restructured and redefined!

the best ideas - thanks! I will pass them on -

puppy - I love disneyworld too - i bet it would make a unique getaway for adults as well - its always good to remember how to be a kid and find the magic once again

Don't go for the diamonds! Diamond harvesting entails more pain and misery than fur harvesting. :(

I LOVE the bed and sheets idea!

Hm. I would ask for a trip to South Dakota. Or...the first edition of a book I really like (I know I know, that's BORING).
