  1. I would buy my daughter an American doll for her birthday this month. I would buy some new kids books like Walter the farting dog ( my sons birthday is coming up next month and he’d love that one) I’d get French books too since we are trying to teach our kids French. I’d buy games as the kids have been really interested and I love how we can all do it together. I’d also stock up on much needed craft supplies! With covid I’ve been doing arts and crafts with them non stop and our supply could use stocking

  2. I’d get some kids books, but also a new board game and one of their fancy throws to wrap up in while I read!
