Gifts for an 8-year-old girl

Is your eight-year-old hard to please? Have no fear. The Amazon mom is here! I’ve had an 8-year-old that did not eat anything besides ice cream and chicken nuggets. She won’t wear anything if it isn’t comfy (no buttons allowed). She won’t even look at it if it isn’t her “unique” style. But, stuff, she loves the stuff! Will it clutter our house? She’s in. She’s happy to help me search every nook and cranny of the internet for the perfect friend’s birthday gifts (and in turn, herself, on that next occasion where we owe her something).

If you need an accessory, the little gadget with the tennis ball on a string attached to a base is pretty cool and keeps the kids going for a while. These rackets are always a hit (sorry, last corny pun, I promise).

Sun is out, shades are on

Does anything drive you crazier as a parent than buying your kid a pair of sunglasses that they sit on, or lose, within 5 minutes? Of course, it’s a pain. So here is my tip. Buy a 12-pack. A 24 pack. A 36 pack. Who cares! Buy them cheap and in bulk. Leave a few pairs in each car so when you get to the beach, and the sunglasses don’t make it, you’ve got plenty of new pairs to pull out, and keep the sun out.
