It is amazing to me how something simple can become an obsession with kids. The other day our neighbor girls gave Parker these little animal shaped rubber band bracelets. I thought they were some junky toy that they got for free at Chuck-E-Cheese or something. And to be honest - I think I threw them away.
Then today Demi came in from outside and ran upstairs. A few minutes later she came down with a handful of stuff that she wanted to trade for some zanybandz.
Ooohhhhh... Those little pieces of junk that I threw away were the new hot thing. Think beanie babies or pogs. Or back in my day - printed shoelaces. Lol. Remember those!?
So Demi and Parker ran outside to trade things for Zanybandz and I stayed inside looking them up on the computer. Wow. They are crazy hot right now. Most sites I went to were sold out. And then I stumbled across this article that explained a bit about them.
I used to be so on top of this stuff when I taught. Now I am just a boring mom. :(
...Too bad I am not just a boring mom who just happened to invent some ridiculously simple animal shaped rubber band bracelets that end up making me a gazillion bucks.
