The day after Petra’s birthday, she got a package from Dad and Robyn. She was pretty excited. She’s starting to figure out how to open presents, which is fun.
I tried to prepare Silas for the fact that there probably wouldn’t be anything for him in that package, because his birthday was last month and this was a package for Petra’s birthday. etc.
And then, of course, there *was* something in there for him. Their birthdays are only three weeks apart; his pile of gifts was not a distant memory.
They both played with the Duplos together, once Petra decided to put her doll down long enough to play. We combined them with Silas’ birthday Duplos and the set we already had, and they built quite an impressive city/train/castle.
