Silly Junk

The best thing to ever happen to my daughter...Rubber bands shaped like sea creatures. Porgie has flipped out over Silly Bandz. One of her little friends had some Silly Bandz, and my baby girl was smitten. She thought they were AWESOME. She keep asking me for some Silly Bandz, but for several weeks I refused to buy them. They are kind of expensive for RUBBER BANDS.

One afternoon I seen a pack of knock-off Silly Bandz at the Dollar Store. I didn't mention it to Porgie, because she had temporarily stopped asking about the goofy bracelets. Of course the next day she was asking me for Silly Bandz again. I thought, what the hell it is only a dollar, and we headed over to the dollar store. Porgie was bouncing in her seat with excitment. But when we got into the store, we couldn't find the braclets. A worker informed us that they were all sold out. Porgie was heartbroken. She looked like she was on the verge of tears, but she held it together. I promised her that we would go back to the dollar store next week and buy her some Silly Bandz.

Today we had to run to the craft store for some yarn. We were in line paying when Porgie spotted a pack of Silly Brandz. Her eyes lit up, and she jumped up and down. I ended up paying $5 for a pack of rubber bands. But she loves them, and I love her, so those silly rubber bands are worth it.

hehe. Yeah, I feel your pain. my stepson apparently has enough to fill a large carabiner with them and I ask him why he has that many and he just shrugs and says, "They're cool!" They're RUBBER BANDS! I wish I had thought of that because I'd be rich. lol.

And yes, $5 for a small pack of rubberbands is totally worth the smile and excitement on that gorgeous little face. :)
