Taxes, bills, recession, economy, yes, yes. With tighter budgets all around, it’s more fun to browse online, where you can look at the entertaining trinkets without having to placate a hovering salesperson.
Today’s toys come courtesy of the Cool Mom Picks Mother’s Day Gift Guide.
I’m always a sucker for USB memory, especially in crystal.
Check out these beautiful laptop sleeves.
And finally, from an earlier Cool Mom Picks post, a cute octopus in scarf and hat!
Non sequitur baby story of the day: While feeding Buster his dinner tonight, I accidentally dropped a piece of casserole from the spoon onto his high chair tray. He picked it up eagerly, and I expected him to stuff it into his mouth.
Nope, he carefully placed it back onto the spoon and waited for me to feed him. Tidy child.
P.S. I’ve already informed SwingDaddy that I don’t actually want any of the shopping items mentioned above. The crystal heart is only 1Gb, which makes the piece not quite pretty enough to be regular jewelry and not enough memory at that price to be useful. I’ve already got a bag for my laptop, and well, I do kind of want the octopus, but we’re suffering from a serious overpopulation of octopi around here, so I’m holding tight on the sealife moratorium.
