Blame it on mommy brain

Ever since Kylie was a baby there has been something really weird going on around our house. It seems like everytime there is a gift giving occasion I forget or misplace something that I mean to give someone. For example, I'll buy the girls something for Easter and find it six months later in the back of my closet. Seriously, this happens all the freaking time. So for the past two years I've been trying to do better. For Christmas and birthdays I'll make a list on my computer of everything I've bought and check it religiously. By the way, this has come in really handy a few times when I've almost bought something more than once. I *thought* I had everything down pat. Then today I was browsing ebay (why, I have no idea) and saw one of these:
 The first thought that popped into my head was, "Aww, that's so cute!" The second thought was "Wait a minute we have that already. I bought that months ago for Sophie. Why hasn't she been playing with it?" Then I realized that she wasn't playing with it because she never received it. Doh. I checked my list and sure enough there was a note next to the tea cart that I needed to wrap it and put it under the tree. Oh well better late than never I suppose

I do the same thing. I over purchase for Christmas so I always stash gifts away to save for GiGi's birthday, but I always forget what I have hidden away.

Where in the world do you find all this cute stuff? GiGi needs that tea cart. Where can I get one? Please share.

I bought it from American Girl ages ago! It was in the bitty baby section. I'm going to wait a few days until we get her room put back together before I give it to her so it doesn't get lost or misplaced again.
