A Trend I Hope Passes Quickly

I really thought that having boys, I was going to squeak by without the drama of the "But Jenny has Guess jeans and a Cabbage Patch doll!". I figured I'd be buying ridiculously expensive tennis shoes at some point but instead, at this 6 year old, first grade point, I hear "Johnny has these awesome Silly Bandz, they're SO COOL, Mom, I want some, can I have some, hu, Mom? I want some Silly Bandz!"  And because Aidan thinks they're awesome, Asher has also developed a taste for the trendier things in life. Of course, you know what that means, don't you? Yes, they throw down over them every single day, multiple times a day. So thank you for that, Silly Bandz people. 

P.S. I acknowledge that Silly Bandz probably won't ask me to review their product or do a giveaway now. That's cool, I wouldn't do that to other parents anyway.

I think it would totally rock to have some adult-themed Silly Bandz. No one would even know that you're wearing a penis on your arm unless you take it off.

Hmmmm, I'll have to work on that. I'll send them to you for a product review!

I dropped $50 bucks in one night on Silly Bandz, but they have come in quite handy as a reward for hard work.

I don't have kids, I have nephews. It's almost as bad but my house isn't messy. (Thank Jeebus)

My nephews are into Bionicles ($20 a pop) Star Wars Legos ($13 to $600) and Hot Wheels ($1 for the cars, $40 to $90 for the tracks).

I just spent $80 on carriers for the hot wheels and $60 on new Bionicles.

I really wonder if boys are cheaper or not.

No, you need to let your sister do it. She loves her's so much (yes, she wears them) she drives around with her dash lights dimmed so she can watch them glow in the dark as she steers.

My seven year old wears them on his arm all. the. time. He has to wear every one he owns in case he meets someone new with 'em so he can trade on the spot.

OMG, so this IS a trend?! I saw Silly Bands doing an email sale saying they are the hottest thing and I was like, "Sure you are SIlly Bands, just like my butt looks good in these jeans right now... sure..."

Ha, guess it IS a thing!

Since I don't have kids, I didn't even know what they were until I saw Neil Patrick Harris with them on the Letterman Show or the Tonight Show... a grown man (sort-of) wearing these idiotic things. Insane! What a waste of money... Although I do like Opto-Mom's idea! TeeHee
