So little Mr. Man turned one year old this past week and we had ourselves two small parties – one on the big day (May 11) with my mom and her fiance. And another one with just a few friends and Hubby’s dad last Saturday. However, it looks like Tonka, Hasbro, and a host of other toy vehicle makers hosted an all night binge drinking session then had an orgy on my living room rug. This is what they spawned:

The worst part? Half of them make electronic sounds, and not just when the kids are with them. They’ll make those sudden loud creepy sounds out of the blue to try to get the attention of any child in a three mile area. They succeed in creeping mommy out.

Seriously, the boy went from having one train to all this. And these are only the things with wheels on them. There were some clothes, a puzzle and a garage for some of those cars.

So I ask you, with all these cars and such, is there ANY reason at all for Sweetness and Mr. Man to have issues over sharing? Hell yeah. More than ever. Each believes ALL of these spawns are theirs. Never a dull moment.

I’m not looking forward to the day that MORE electronic toys invade our house. I’m putting together a “wishlist” for family members when they ask what she wants for her birthday and Christmas. I’m hoping more wooden toys than loud electronic battery operated toys…we’ll see!

And the more toys he has the more toys he won’t share, haha. You can now add referee to your list of jobs.

LoL this post is awesome! We have moments like this one where I wonder “where did all these toys COME from?”..and not just at birthdays. I never gave it a thought when I’d buy electronic toys for nieces and nephews for holidays and birthdays…but now I feel bad for the pain I put their parents through. Sometimes I wonder if it would be simpler to just buy old-school blocks and dolls and call it a day. At least it’d be quieter 🙂
