Aaw mom! Do I HAVE to blog?

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)
  • Balls
  • 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!

  1. My cats greatly enjoyed the boxes, ribbons, and wrapping paper we casually tossed aside while unwrapping our gifts. In fact, they were quite offended when I threw it all out.

    RE: See, one should never clean. I KNEW IT!

  2. Wow, I haven’t been on blogs for near a week. Too much going on this week to waste my life on the nets…

    Legos rock. I still have two full Avon boxes full from twenty years ago that my boy will inheret. Perhaps your kids didn’t want to jump on the trampaline because it was designed to be jumped on, as opposed to, oh say, a couch, which is not made to jump on but which offers much more fun to jump on.

    For me, my most used toy is my Gears Of War 2 for my XBOX, and the Kitchen Aid mixer. Fresh sourdough, mmmmmmmm.
    And my boy has eaten many a wrapping paper, and has swollowed a couple gallons of Orajel from his stocking.

    RE: Waste my life? Dude, I call it a “Sanity Check.”

    You’ll see someday soon…

  3. I have to agree with Surfer Jay…
    legos are pretty much the … well they are cool.

    In fact, I got what I wanted for Christmas…
    the new XBox 360 Star Wars: Complete Saga Lego game!

    It’s nothing short of awesome.
