Please DO NOT buy my kids TOYS for Christmas..
– 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 that cost santa over £100… They say they don’t feel like it and are bored with 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.
Want to know what Aunt Emily can get her? A movie date with her on a weekend, a trip to the zoo, a painting class… something where they can spend time together!
