I’m seriously beginning to question my judgment in regard to what I would deem “fun” toys to purchase for my kids at Christmas time.
I really don’t know the answer. I guess I pictured them being mesmerized by the fact that every action has an equal and opposite reaction and finding themselves entranced by Newton’s 3rs Law of Motion.
Really? Really Michelle? Have I EVER seen them entranced by anything other than Cailliou or Scooby-Doo???
For now, I’ve learned that while I do in fact know my boys very, very well….I also let my completely impossible hopes and dreams of them sitting still for more than 3 minutes get in the way of reality and get it way, WAY wrong a lot of the time too. And while my initial reaction to seeing this was not “good”….I think I may just keep this on my desk to remind me of how wonderfully chaotic life can be at times.
And to just go with the light sabers next time.
