Gotta love cheap toys!

What I've learned over the years is that cheap toys are great for parents because it saves us some money. But in the end, you should have spent a little extra and got a better one because the cheap crap always breaks!

Well this time the kids really do have a cheap toy that I love. Paige has always wanted one of those sticks with a horse's head to ride on. I guess she got tired of asking every time we came across one so she made her own. She found a huge stick in the backyard. I gave her one of the many socks I have that doesn't have a mate, and she used the bottom of 2 of those little plastic containers that hold toys from the quarter machines at the grocery store. Here is her brother riding her creation named Princess.......

Ok, so I admit it's not the prettiest thing in the world. In fact, I think it's rather creepy. But it gives the kids hours of entertainment, which means they're out of my hair for a while!

Oh, and listening to Paige scream at Mike for "riding her princess" followed by looks from the neighbors is just priceless!
