The youngest is attending a birthday party of a school friend this weekend – and out of courtesy, I had called her parents to ask what she was into these days. And guess what her mother said – xbox games or the DS 3D games. Wow! these days kids are very expensive! when we were young – our parents would ask for books or something simple – but I’m guessing in the West – they just ask for whatever the kid is playing even though they are expensive gifts, the parents don’t have trouble asking for it during the kid’s birthday.
There is probably going to be pizza only at the party – and my kid don’t even eat pizza – so she would only have a piece of small cake – and that piece of cake is going to cost us closed to $35 for a birthday present – darn! We can’t let her attend many birthday parties no more if every kid wanted a xbox game or a DS 3D game. Would you ask for such an expensive present for your kid’s birthday? I don’t know what to think – since the kids are only 6 years old – what will they ask for when they turn 16? I think we are good with our kid’s gifts – we never let them have expensive toys or gifts.
