As a (fairly) new parent I am overwhelmed with the urge to buy my child the newest and best toys. I never thought I would be that kind of parent, the keeping up with the Jones's parent. Yet here I am wanting Bel to have the best of everything, all the toys she can handle. I know it's not the best thing for her, so I try not to go overboard. Even though she has tons of toys she seems to enjoy playing with everyday things the best. So the urge to buy her everything is all on me! She would rather spend time with me playing with bowls, toilet paper, rocks, or bottles.
As the Christmas present craziness sets in I'm going to try and remember my time and attention is what will make her happiest, and that it won't always be that way. I'm going to enjoy every second of my baby being a baby this Christmas.
Do find yourself getting sucked into the toy hype of the season?
