As much as I love him having a hobby I just hate these silly cards as come September they will be thrown away (well the ones I havent got my hands on yet). Also he never keeps them safe meaning the babies get hold of them and before I know it I am collecting them from under the sofa and trying to sort the teams.
There is also the issue of swaps at school, someone always makes a bad swap and someone always gets upset. Then you get a phone call from the school to say can they look in your sons bags to sort the cards and it becomes a big faff! Back in my day you did a bad move in pogs you delt with it. Ive had parents come up to me at school and say which cards do we have, Its all rather ridiculous and I will be glad when the next fad thing comes along.
I can not complain it could be worse, ok I have to fight two toddlers off the cards and make sure they do not rip them or bend them. Also playing top trumps with 200 cards aside takes forever but at least he is intrested in something.
this made me laugh. Reminds me of the loom bands in our house last year. everywhere - no matter how many times I hovered them up. And the girls arguing over colours and designs. Thankfully, they seem to have moved on from the little pesks. Lovely blog :)ReplyDelete
School and parents shouldn't be interfering in these matters, unless there is some serious trouble. We did a couple of card albums in the past but never finished themReplyDelete
Oh my goodness I am totally with you there! These cards are a new thing for us and a bane of my life! I had no idea they'll get thrown away at the end of the season! x xReplyDelete
