With the holidays coming up, I've been a loyal customer for "amazon.com" scouring the latest and greatest on baby toys. Let's face it: I am so out of the loop on what is cool in baby land. "Yo Gabba-Gabba," "Dora the Explorer," "Melissa & Doug Toys." Pretty much foreign language. All I've ever heard is Baby Einstein and Fisher Price. I have visions of sugar plums, Santa, and a happy (6 month old mind you!) as she opens her toys and squeals with excitement that Mommy got her the newest and prettiest Shape Sorting Cube.
Maddy is obsessed with tags.
TAGS I tell you.
No matter what toy, water bottle, book or shirt she is drooling on-she thinks it's mundane except for the tag.
So in this snail-paced improving economy I say this out of love: Save your money. But save your trash. Maddy's Christmas will be rocked if all she is given are pieces of cardboard, newspaper, sales ads and TAGS.
I guarantee she will love the wrapping paper and bows.
