Louisianna woman Mississippi man

Well, I go back to work tomorrow for 4 days before New Years.

My kids got some cool presents.
My youngest got a Wii among other things and my oldest got his first cell phone and a bunch of other stuff. He is almost 13...shit. I can't get over how old he is already, and the fact that I have been a mother this long. It doesn't seem that long. I wonder if I will be saying this when he is 20? Both boys will turn 11(Chandler) and 13(Caleb) in February 2 days apart. So now I have to start looking already for birthday presents for them because usually it takes me that long to decide.

I think I should get Chandler games for his Wii but Caleb? God I have no idea. Especially now that he is getting older, going on 13, I feel it's getting tougher. I can't just buy him baby games anymore. It's all sophisticated stuff now and he has everything you can imagine...Pc, mp3 player, game systems with games( too many) digital camera, and a what????

Chandler has every Lego known to man along with every Pokemon card and also a variety of game systems with too many games as it is. Like I said he will be 11, and he loves to read...if anyone has ideas for books or anything else????

I need ideas for both of them and if anyone has any ideas please please god help. I need it.

For the sake of these two brats.....

If you decide to buy games for the wii, don't buy them in Sweden. European games don't work on an american wii.

A book might be too boring as a bday present to such pre-teen boys. I got a guitar when I turned 13, and I taught myself to play it that summer. Don't know if your boys already got such or if they'd be interested in learning to play guitar. Guitar plus guitar lessons would be nice bday presents to both of them. Or maybe just drum lessons? Or go kart driving at torslanda, with the whole family?
Belated happy holidays, btw! :)
