Help with Boo's present

So...the kids birthdays are coming up...and quickly.

I need some help with part of Boo's present. While she doesn't read the blog (I think...) you just never know so this is the ONLY time I will link to her gift.


Go here and scroll to May 7th.

I'll wait.

Okay so here's the deal. I got those in October, and she HAS NO IDEA. At all. (she JUST came out of the bedroom, good thing I can click fast)

Props to me! I can't keep a secret to save my life!


I need some help in figuring out HOW to tell her about the tickets at her birthday party next month. I will do it in front of all the family, because her reaction will be FABULOUS. I will get video of her for sure.

I had the idea of getting her a calendar of HER and marking down the days to the concert, but for some reason that sounds...lame.

Help me out here! How do I tell an 8 year old that she is going to the concert she has (literally) dreamed of?

It is cruel but you could always do the small wrapped box in a larger wrapped box, in a larger box, in a larger box etc. But in the small box have a note to look at a certain date on the calendar or something...

I'll keep thinking that might be lame.

hmmmm.... maybe get a poster of her and have that be the first present to open

and then a t-shirt

and inside the t-shirt put a note or something that says "for you to wear to the concert"

I like where Marketing Mama is going with that thought! The lead into it is everything! I want to see some serious squealing/screaming too!!!!
