Suggestions So Far

As I noted yesterday evening, I need some birthday present suggestions for Miss Reba. This is what we've got so far:

Sparkly things, a trip to the spa, flowers, 500 parrots, a fake dragon tattoo, some pie, a new oven and a fancy set of copper cookware, a different-coloured Volvo, top line chocolates, an oven where the "broil" setting is actually only 350, and a $100 pair of shoes.

Any others?

Time with you? Prearrange one Friday night of kid-sitting with grandparents, while you and Miss Reba head out for dinner, movies, concerts, walks in the park all on your lonesome. Heck, you do know that you don't actually HAVE to stay overnight in the hotel room...

This is probably best accompanied by a sparkly thing to appease the "it's my birthday and I want something now" tradition, but I personally like the kind of gifts that involve some anticipation...

Gah. One Friday night a month for three months. Brain raced ahead of fingers.

A full body massage.

Or if that's immodest for her, a spa day. Without oldest.

A Thumper Pro Massager combined with a date night.

Plus the Thumper could come in useful if Rebecca gets stiff from soccer, or any of the rest of you could use a pounding.

If I didn't like my sister so well, I'd regret letting her take the one I bought for my mother.

Well, I was thinking...Remember those Lexus commercials they run around Christmas where some proud guy leaves a shiny new Lexus with a shiny new red bow tied around it for his wife to find? You could leave a shiny new Lexus with a shiny new PINK bow tied around it for Reba to find for her birthday!

Well, she might be disappointed when the dealership comes and take it back.
