I HATE TOYS

I'm sorry, I know that is a rather harsh declaration but it's true! I HATE TOYS!!!

I have just spent a day and 1/2 cleaning my sons room and in the process I have filled a huge rubber maid bin with unwanted toys. They are outta here....

The sad part is my son will NEVER know that they are gone. His room just looks neat and orderly -and you can't tell a thing is missing. Every basket, every self and every bin is still full of toys...

Brian and I are kind of old fashioned in the sense that we don't shower our kids with a bunch of unnecessities (or so we thought). We like the good old kind of fun were you play hard outside, run and yell and build forts. Inside we play board games and cards or snuggle up to a movie...who needs toys?

I don't know how, but we got SUCKERED!!! Just wanting to be that fun, loving and giving parent...we caved. Yeah, it's true. Against our better judgement we bought a toy or two.

Then we had those grandparents contribute to the cause, oh and of course the friends who couldn't resist, and let's not forget the aunts and uncles...

Friends, I am here to say, it's a conspiracy!! Seriously, it's a plot against ALL unsuspecting mothers. Be warned! The toys multiply- they take over your house, your children, and if you are not careful YOUR LIFE!!!

ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!! Will you stand with me in the fight against toys?

Oh and if you are NOT with me - the BIG BLUE RUBBERMAID CONTAINER FULL OF TOYS (mentioned above) WILL PROMPTLY BE SHIPPED DIRECTLY TO YOU!

Me too! Don't ship them here either. Unless you want to bring them to the garage sale.
