Ok so my title asks one of my questions and leads to my rant.
My dad's gf has 3 kids Kayla, Ryan and Mitchell. Mikayla is turning 8 on thursday.. My dad forgot it was her birthday and yesterday we were over in the states looking around for a present and we can't seem to find anything like she has a ton of little baby dolls and a ton of barbies and she doesn't really play with barbies anymore but she has tons of accessories (sp?) for both.
RANT #1 at everystore my dad was said many variations of this "I'm going to look at the toy cars (because he collects them for models for work and for his train model) you can go look at the dolls"
And i would reply with a "why do i have to look for dolls?"
"Because you're a girl"
ARGH!!! Just because i'm a girl and i once played with dolls doesn't mean i know what an 8 yr old now a days would want.. i was 8, 8 years ago!!!!
I hate those roles that boys are cars and girls are dolls !!!!!!!! ARGH
But what would you guys get an 8 year old??? i have no clue what to get her? I'm thinking a Nintendo DS game. Her mom, my dad and i are all getting her a watch (even though it was only like 15 bucks it's gunna be from all of us). And then the present i'm looking for tomorrow will be just from me and my dad.
If you guys have little sisters go ask them now.
