My Kids Really Don't Need Christmas Presents
Little Buddy often finds a way to break the toys anyway. I can't tell you how much time they've spent with this toy. First they take it apart. Then they beg me to put it back together, then they play with it for awhile, then they break it again and the cycle starts over.
Every night all they want to do is wrestle and jump on the couch cushions.
They find ways to spend their time in unique ways. This rock collection took a long time to assemble.
They spent an hour one night trying to catch leaves falling from the trees. Again, a free activity and very heart-warming.
Okay, it's time for me to come clean. Of course I'm going to get them presents. Sheesh what kind of Mom do you think I am? They love getting presents and I have to admit that I do love seeing them figure out a new toy. The toy on the top photo has held up well over months and months of abuse from the kids and it does keep them very busy. We won't stop wrestling or catching leaves, but I think Little Buddy really does need a ball pit. Right??
