Every year, Paul asks me, “What do you want for Christmas?” Every year I have the same things on my list. World Peace. End to Hunger. When I get serious though, my wants are usually all the same. I love music. I love yummy perfume. I love luggage. Here is my list for Christmas this […]
There are currently 402,000 children in the foster care system in the United States of America and nearly 102,000 children (under 18 years of age) waiting for adoption. Approximately 23% of children and youth actively photolisted on the AdoptUSKids website and waiting for placement in adoptive homes were registered with one or more siblings. Sibling relationships are often the longest-lasting relationships for children in foster care.
I remember waking up on Christmas morning and tip-toeing down the long hallway to the living room where the tree was. Perhaps my memory has been colorized with hues of nostalgia but I can recall that the room glowed. The presents were everywhere and for good measure, Santa would usually leave a gift in the fireplace as if he dropped it or it was an after-thought. After that it was a day filled with board games and sad memories of a Gnip Gnop Game that never quite worked. Here are some gifts that are going to make the room glow for your kids!
Shopping for children during the holidays is quite easy if you have an unlimited budget and a million hours to invest in driving to the stores or stalking Amazon for the perfect gifts. Here at CoupleDumb, we get you. We love the holidays but seem to love them more when we are completely done shopping and can focus on the fa-la-la-ing of the season rather than waiting for a store to restock what you want. Like every year, we are here to help you pick out the perfect gifts for your kids but decided to split the list with Educational Gifts and Plain Ole Fun Gifts. Enjoy!
