I have a seven year old son and five year old daughter. This year for Christmas, they received a number of lovely and thoughtful gifts from their grandparents, aunt, and uncles. Then, there were those gifts that either were less well considered, or are evidence of my family’s deep seeded animosity toward me. Those include:
A three-story doll house that took approximately 5 hours to assemble, and that fit together poorly so that I had to whittle pieces down to make it go together.
A Loon Tune (https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=8MpUbRmZYR0)
A “microphone” that essentially just amplifies the voice and optionally adds reverb. A small bullhorn is what it is, really.
So I now live in a home with a five year old who has a bullhorn and a seven year old who has a Loon Tune and a vuvuzela. Coulda been worse I suppose. Coulda been drums, spray paint, Jarts, a puppy. But still. A fucking vuvuzela?
Anybody else have kids who got gifts you really have to question the motivation for?
