Orbeez: The New Moon Sand

Okay, so you know those toys you hate and your kids love?

Here's a list:

Moon Sand, Play-dough, Anything Noisy, Things They Get In Party Gift Bags That End Up All Over The House.

You know what I mean. And the list goes on and on.

Here's a new one for the list: Orbeez. Max saw some at school and HAD TO HAVE THEM. We looked around, and couldn't find them anywhere but Big Lots, which should have been my first clue. They are these little granules that come in packets and then enlarge when put in water into these Boba sized balls that I am desperately trying to keep from ending up all over my house. But the kids LOVE THEM. I mean, like play with them for a half hour with no fighting love them. So, I guess I am mildly recommending them?

Wait, did I just say that?

I do have to admit they are kind of pretty suspended in a glass of water.

I'm a sucker for aesthetics. If only Moon Sand was so pretty!

Dear Blog,

Well, hello blog, how have you been?

It's been too long, right?

Well, I was just out on a walk today after having a fluish icky virus for two weeks and took this picture and thought of you. I'm so glad it's fall and that, at least for today, it's sweater weather.

Hope all is well in the blogosphere, and hope to be seeing much more of you soon.
