Every Year….But No More

I do ‘t know maybe I should not have said anything. But seriously how difficult is it to find presents for your child? I listen when we talk. I pay attention to the things he is interested in.

And I have said it before but I prefer buying gifts that will be used not left to languish in the closet. To be regifted or given away without even being open. Which is why I am crushed if I get it wrong. Well not crushed but not happy.

T is getting harder go by for as he ages. I work to stay in touch with his likes and wants. Not always an easy easy in these days of fastly changing technology and gaming industries.

Last night I got a garbled message from the ex. So garbled in fact that I could not even decipher it in the least. 不不不 That is pretty good for perplexing me when I have over 20 years experience with his gobbly gook writings.

Eventually I determined that he was asking if the gift I got for T was just from me or it included him and L too. I stopped and started a few responses until I came up with the right one.

Me: Sure it can be from the three of us. You just owe me $50 then.

Ex: Oh okay I will think about it.

不不不不不不不不

This morning we have been chatting and I sent him a few things I thought T would like. And then it hit me.

I have written a few times about T working in the shop with his dad. A starter tool kit duh! 丹儭丹儭丹儭Well it turns out he already had gotten him something like that. Plus two other items for use in shop. T is going to love love love that. 歹 伐伐伐

There should be no more attempts at gift piggy backing as there has been all these years. Now he can add to tool kit. Who wouldn’t appreciate good quality tools as gift?
