It's 5:45 a.m. and I'm at work. The Mrs is still sleeping (thank goodness - it gives me a chance to post my blog) and I've been looking up a few of the new toys on Google. One ad on TV yesterday caught my eye and made me sit up and wonder what is happening in the world today.
They were advertising for a fun new game called "Doggie Doo". I guess you take your doggie for a walk, he poops and you scoop it up. I guess you win if scoop up the most doggie poop. Excuse me??
There's also a dolly called "Baby Alive" who, after you feed her, will poop green slime. Well dang me! I just gotta have me one of these little darlings! There's even a book that explains how everyone and everything poops. Every normal child really needs all of these marvelous new toys!
Folks, somewhere along the way I have been misguided. I never realized that it was important and fun to play with doggie poop and dolly diarrhea . No one ever thought to give me a book explaining that everything poops and it's okay to play with the stuff. I never passed all these wonderful things on to my children either. What a disservice I've done to them!
PULLEEZE!!!!! Whatever happened to nice dollies and stuffed doggies? The Little Golden books were nice too. Whatever happened to children being just children while they can? Maybe there are some important qualities to these toys but I fail to see them. I guess I am now officially a dotty old lady!
Enough ranting! Today is Christmas Eve day. Later today (around 3 p.m.) when I leave here and head home, I will go to Deanne's house where we will have our Christmas Eve gathering and I will pick up my Pogo. After that, Pogo and I will go home and rustle up some supper. Then it will be time to curl up on the sofa and watch a Christmas movie while we wait for Santa Claus.
I tell you, I am having a grand time this year for Christmas. Most of that is due to Pogo and his adorable antics. My daughter in law bought him a Santa suit, and I will take photos of him wearing it. I've asked Santa to wrap most of Pogo's stuff in tissue paper to make it easier for him to tear things open. Yessir, I'm looking forward to Christmas morning.
Now for your last two parts of "A Child's Xmas". Your download links are just below the preview. I hope you have fun scrapping with this kit.
I suppose many of you have lots of running around and last minute wrapping to finish up today. I hear there will be lots of bad weather in parts across the country. Do be careful and get back home safely. I'm hoping Santa will be very good to each of you and your furry kids too.
If you decide to stop in tomorrow for a minute or two, you will find a Christmas freebie . So till tomorrow, Y'all have a very Merry and Blessed Christmas.
Hugs, Edna B.
