Now, this is not to say that my son doesn't have his fair share of store bought toy. Being the only grandchild, so far, on either my or my husbands side of the family he is showered with plenty of toys to keep him busy but much prefers these random objects around the house to any bright, colourful and sometimes pricy toys found in a store. And while I do appreciate any toy he receives as gifts and will purchase some myself in the future for him they aren't necessary (despite what the commercials try and tell you).
I need to take a page out of his book, and learn to enjoy what we have and not look to bright and noisy tv commercials to tell us what we need to be able to have a full and enjoyable life.
