A couple weeks ago, while making up the Christmas Skirts the naughties were over. Since we’re trying to sell the condo (hence the sign) I packed up all the toys and keep a tiny box in the car. Of course on naughty days I trade cars with my sister and I always forget to take the box. But really that is so not an issue. After I let them play with water in the kitchen which is why they’re in undies, (I know it’s winter, what is aunty thinking?) they found my rick rack and threw it all over the house, over and over.
Then they found some of my bolts of (designer) fabrics and I’m not sure what game it could have been but it included pushing the bolts around and standing on them. This totally confirmed my suspicion that toys are overrated, fun to buy I admit, but bordering on unnecessary. Seriously when Lanna was a baby we put her in a box with a ball and she loved it. Also the other day I poured water on her head which sent her (and me) into fits of laughter. Come on you know you want me to babysit your kids.
IN OTHER NEWS I want to say a HUGE THANK YOU for those of you who took advantage of or spread the word about my Thanksgiving Weekend sale. It was a wonderful success. In all the ways that the Halloween frenzy was stressful and overwhelming this was the opposite while still being good business. I think I have found a system that works for me :) .
p.s. There are still a handful of giveaways open (see the right hand column) and the most recent one, the night light you don’t have to link back just go comment.
