I read an article by a mom who was asking people NOT to buy her kids TOYS for Christmas... she expressed the same sentiments I have from years past with London... Let's see if anyone else has this happen...
- Kid wants toy for Christmas and talks about it all the time.
- Kid opens toy for Christmas and immediately rips it open and starts to put it together & play.
- 2 days later kid is asking for new app on their iPad, and you suggest they go play with that awesome toy they wanted so bad... They say they don't feel like it.
- One week later, toy is shoved in the back of their closet, never to be seen again... UNTIL you do a pre-Christmas clean out the following year when said toy is then donated because the child expresses that she no longer likes it. 😕
AH, it kills me a little every time!!!
This year, we are making a Christmas list filled with EXPERIENCES, not toys.
