Ben went to a boy from school's birthday party today and came back with a Whoopee cushion.
It occupied all of both boys' time all evening, with outbursts of hysterics every few minutes.
Meanwhile, Elissa discovered a whole new joy - a ball. She found Charlie's little ball and played with it on her own and with me and her brothers for ages. There's one thing I can put on the list for a 1st birthday present.
Oh, and I did wrap the board game present in pink wrapping paper. Pathetic attempts at social engineering. :)
