The Bandz, They Arrive

I thought the fad would pass before Q-ster was old enough to pay attention, but he came home with his first Silly Bandz today, a gift from a friend.

The first hit is always free, isn't it?

At least this is a fairly cute trend. (Collective groan from those of you who have been monitoring Silly Bandz trading rules for years . . .)

I need to catch up on Silly Bandz.

Luckily, so far my home is Silly Bandz free. But we'll have to see just how much longer it lasts.

Maybe we'll skip this trend altogether. Hopefully the next one will involve similarly cute, non-noisy objects.

These things are a NIGHTMARE at school... I'm sure at home, though, it's not nearly as big a deal, and on a young'un like Q, it's probably much cuter. :)

Our kids' school cracked down hard on the Bandz at the beginning of the year, so it's been OK so far. Sometimes it's fun to try to figure out the shapes (when they're not as cute and apparent as that elephant).

Unfortunately, Jimmy also was given his first band the other day, fortunately, he doesn't seem all that interested... Dodged a bullet on that one!

I am waiting to see how long before we actually have to buy any ourselves. So far Ada seems to be getting them from friends without actually returning the favor...

I've bought very few, yet they are ALL OVER MY HOUSE. And she doesn't wear them, because THEY'RE NOT IN SEASON. That could be code for passe; I'm not sure.
