I feel like such a slacker for NOT blogging since…whenever, but there’s been just so much going on that I didn’t know what to write. And in truth, most of it is the very same stuff you’re all going through–pudge, too many gifts, gifts that don’t work, where the hell am I gonna put all this crap, etc.–that I didn’t figure you needed to hear it from me either.
Suffice it to say that life is slowly getting back to normal. And by normal, I mean as normal as it can be when you’ve been off with your hyperactive kids for a solid week with the worst weather ever that is keeping you from taking them outside to burn off steam.
But, I figured that if any of you were taking back toys that just didn’t quite do it, that I’d share with you the “Best and Worst Toys” my kids got this year.
Feel free to share your list!
Most played with toys of Christmas 2008:
- Batman Cave Thingy (link)
- The Box that a “Build a Bear” came in
- Shake N Go! Crash Speedway (link)
- More Lego’s
- The Wii (mostly played by me I think)
Least played with toys of Christmas 2008:
- Mini trampoline (quite a surprise here since they LOVE to jump on stuff)
- Super Cool “Dark Night” BatMobile w/bonus Motorcycle(link)
- SpiderMan Sit-n-Spin (link)
So there you have it. I’m always surprised at what the kids like and what they don’t, though I don’t know why. If there’s one thing I’ve learned about kids, it’s that just when you think you have them figured out, they go and find something else to drive you crazy with.
I look forward to a new 2009-worth of good blogging. If you haven’t posted lately, do so. We all need a diversion!
