So what should I get?

Well, the 7th is my birthday and we celebrated it yesterday since my dad has a class he has to do for work this weekend and won't be home, I believe. Anyways, this weekend my mom is taking me to get my birthday present (since me and my older siblings are hard to buy for we get our birthday money and get to choose something), I was going to get clothes because I don't have a whole lot, and need some more, and I love clothes. But I also want a Nintendo DS. I have played on one before and they are really fun, but I might not have enough to get the DS (I would get a refurbished one), and the accessory kit, as well as a game (It would be nice to get 2). I need to re-do how much it would be and see. I might have enough since I got birthday money from Grandparents, my parents, and from 2 very close family friends. The thing is I don't know what I want to get. It would be nice to have a DS for whenever we move (which is 2 and 1/2 hours away, but I might get knocked out from having to take Dramamine), and to our possible trip to Oregon next summer, but if I didn't get it now I would have still have enough time to get one with saving up my allowance before we would go to Oregon.
So what should I do?
Cleanser: Liquid Castile Soap diluted in a foaming soap dispenser
Rinse:
ACV rinse
Detangler/Conditioner:
Oyin Handmade Greg Juice or Juices and Berries
Stylers: Botticelli Botanicals Styling Mudd, KCCC, Honey Rinses and BRHG, Crack Leave-in Hair Cream when straightening

Tools: Silk pillowcase, Floursack towels, Jersey T-Shirts, Wide Tooth Comb, Velecta Paramount TGR-VQX Hair Dryer (for when I straighten) and BaByliss PRO Ionic Rollabout Hard Hat Dryer
Get the DS! It sounds like what you want, so do it!
I vote for the DS too. You can always buy individual items of clothing as you go.
Another DS vote here. But I'm a geek and always vote for electronic toys.

Seek not to change the world. Rather seek to change your mind about the world.
I'd get the clothes...can't stand video games...

My oldest son's birthday is September 7 also. He's getting a watch.
I used to hate getting clothes, so I would vote DS..

Ok-sort of on subject-My daughter has been begging for a DS all year for her SIXTH birthday. These things are expensive...do y'all think it's appropriate for a 6 yo to have one if I can swing it? I do know kids in her pre-k class last year used to bring them to school, and it annoyed me that they were allowed to do that...TIA.

I vote for clothes. Video games get old after about 3 weeks. I think they are a huge waste of money...

I don't think I have enough to even get a refurbished DS and one game, but my brother just told me that they are having a sale right now on games....I don't know what I'll do. I think I might just get clothes and save up my allowance until I have enough to get all the stuff for it that I really want. I'm deffinitely not addicted to them, I rarely play on the video game systems we have now.

Oh, we took a trip to go where we are moving yesterday because my dad thought he found a house, and it would be perfect, but they won't budge on there price. That means we are stuck in a hotel for at least a month.

Oh, my brothers would die if that would be the limit! Believe me if I were in charge it would be 30 minutes a day to an hour max, and only that after they turned ten (two are under ten one is older then me). Then the games would be taken and locked up.

So, I logically know I should pass on the DS (age, money), but I know how much she wants it. I do let her play educational preschool games on the computer up to an hour (Spongebob gets 15 min!-d@mn Nickelodian!). Thanks for the input

If I have an appointment and I need them to go with me and BEHAVE, I'll let them play their games. Also, they are not all bad. They actually do have some educational value. DS's have several educational games that are very good. There are studies that support the use of video games:

I read a different article last week on the subject but I can't find it right now.

My children save their allowances to buy new games. It's not a total free ride.
Currently, using JC HCC, Too Shea, CK and CCSS, RR or LOOB or MOP-C.
CK is the one!!

as of 6/17/10 - I have to add Joico!

We could learn a lot from crayons; some are sharp, some are pretty, some are dull, some have weird names and each is a different color. But they all have to learn how to live in the same box. ~Anonymous

Well, I went a head and got clothes. I have about half right now, and we'll finish getting them sometime later. I'm also old enough tot wear clip-on earings now to so I'm getting a couple pairs of those, and I need a new wallet as well as a watch.
