I haven't actually purchased any Silly Bandz. It seemed that Kate was having enough fun just acquiring them from friends. Plus I hate buying trinkets. You know that Silly Bandz are just future landfill. And I am overly fearful of spoiling her by giving her everything her friends have. And I thought maybe the fad would last until Christmas so I could use Silly Bandz as stocking stuffers. And she has never actually asked me to buy her any.
However, this morning as we were getting ready for school, she had a bunch of regular brown rubber bands on her arm. She told me that they are *real* silly bands and make shapes when she takes them off. I wanted to know what shapes. She told me that they make potatoes and seeds.
Insert mommy guilt moment right here.
Poor girl. I appreciate the creativity, but she'll probably have some real Silly Bandz by this afternoon...
