Why Buy Toys

Does anyone else feel crazed when they buy their kids toys and the kids don’t want anything to do with them?

Every time I get this girl something she sneers at it and throws it over her shoulder. “Blah. Mom.” she says. “Boring!”

Seriously. It’s like, “Oh, Clare here is Paris and the Eiffel Tower and the Louvre or Milwaukee and cheese.”

“Cheese PLEASE!” says Clare.


“No seriously, Mom. I don’t want fancy toys. Give me some trash and I’ll be happy.”

Currently her favorite things to play with are:

A toothbrush

Empty 2 liter Turkey Hill bottles

A medicine cap

Tags, all tags


A mushroom brush


A big cardboard box

Why buy toys?

I bought this cute little tinker toy bear thing (so CUTE) and Clare bites it and tosses it to the side to look for her turkey baster.

Let’s hope her teen years are this inexpensive.
