Yes, it has Disney princesses on it, but by golly it's a PURPLE TRICYCLE WITH STREAMERS.
I would have been over the freaking moon for this bike as a tot. My tricycle was a very odd shade of green. Maybe the same color as the inside of a lime? Anyway, it was seriously ugly, but it worked so I never complained.
We're not going to wrap it. We're going to assemble it and set it up in front of the tree with a bow on it. The seat and handlebars are adjustable so the bike should fit Livvie just fine.
As far as the princesses are concerned, well, I really don't think I can fight it. It will happen soon enough, and this bike should be good for a few years so we might as well get started. I'm also buying Livvie a feather boa, because she pulls dirty shirts out of the hamper and drapes them around her shoulders, dragging them behind her.
I'm fairly certain that this new baby is a boy. I don't know why I feel that way but I do. Then, I was the only person last time who was certain that Livvie was a girl so maybe I'm right. Anyway, I was talking to Rich about it the other day and I told him we can go ahead and move all of the comic book stuff into the new baby's room and "girl" Livvie's room up a bit. I thought fairies would be a cool way to go, but a thorough search online has alerted me that fairy bedroom decor costs an arm and a leg, unless you go with Tinkerbell. And I can't stand Tinkerbell.
So I guess we'll start small with a little purple bike. It'll be quite awhile before the new baby actually moves into a bedroom anyway. Until then Livvie can sleep surrounded by super heroes. Not such a bad thing...
