Secondly, I am in no way skipping Thanksgiving. It is actually my favorite holiday this year. I don't have to cook, clean my house or have an aneurysm trying to buy people gifts. Bring on the Turkey and Pumpkin Pie!
I noticed tonight as I was entertaining Thing 2 with an oven mitt, that Thing 1 was playing with a plethora of store bought toys. Thing 2 has definitely been subjected to hand-me-down items,...or whatever is in reach. With my first, everything was shiny and new and appropriate for his age. In fact, his Christmas' thus far have resembled stock-the-shelves day at Toys R Us. We are not solely to blame. The grandparents and my sister are major contributors to the spoilage with toys factor.
|This is a disgusting display of consumerism, but Thing 1 LOVED it.|
|How awesome is this toy? Look! It has chickens on it! CHICKENS! The fun never ends!|
|Do I really even need to talk about the many uses for this fabulous toy? We take our recycling seriously around here!|
