It's that time again! Time to ask the girls to start making up their Christmas Lists. The hardest part of shopping is figuring out what they want or like. So a few years ago I started asking for lists. It was so much easier when they were little to go to Toys R Us and fill up the cart with all the toys they saw advertised on Saturday morning cartoons. Now, it's like pulling teeth to get a list from them. Up until last year, even with their lists, I was able to surprise them with a really nice present they didn't expect. But, I'm afraid those days are gone. The well of ideas has run dry. Sigh.
So what do I get two girls, 21 and 24, who have everything AND if they are missing something, they have the money to get it? Even if I ask them right now what do you want, they answer "I don't know." Not very helpful at all.
So this year, since our phone plan is up, I have decided on Smart Phones for the girls, whatever they are! My older daughter says the words "smart phone" at least once a day. That must mean something. So far I have gathered that with these phones you can access the internet and email and also use it as a GPS. These phones are probably too smart for my husband and I to own. We just want phones that ring when a call comes in or goes to voice mail should we have them off. Of course, if they ever invent a phone that is smart enough to do laundry or cook, then I'm sold!
New Smart Phones for Christmas will not be a surprise though. I willI to go to AT&T with them, one day soon, so they can decide which phone is the smartest! I don't want to surprise them Christmas morning with "dumb" phones, and ruin the holiday. Meanwhile, my husband and I will settle for the best "Flintstone" model they have available this year.
