46 more shopping days

Yes, indeedy, the true stpirit of Christmas right her for you folks. Only 46 more shopping days.

*sigh*

Something is wrong here. It should read, 46 more days to celebrate the birth of our Savior.

Yes, I like that better.

I hear Uzz complain often of the "prostitots" dolls and styles in which people dress their children. Yes, even I turn down some hand-me-downs when they are leopard print. I usually sit in the floor with my mouth agape that anyone I know would allow their preschool aged daughter to wear leopard print.

*shaking my head*

And, then, I laughed a bit at at the Bratz, slutz, whorz and skankz line of dolls. While shopping for my dear daughter the other day, I had to drag my mom away from this skanky pair of dolls in which both the boy and girl doll had frosted hair and their car had leopard print seat covers. Step away slowly from the hoochie-mobile and dolls, mom. Push the cart away and look down this aisle where the very cute Dora The Explorer toys are instead. *whew* Wiping Brow and feeling good about diverting that tragedy.

    I swear there is a group of people out there that make these dolls to "normalize" being a tramp...I swear!

    Here's another reader in agreement.
    And doting grandmas need guidance almost as much as youngsters do.

    I'm so glad I had sons. And I'm the mom on the block who questions all the kids who come through the door, to the embarassment of the boys who actually live here.
    I tell them in my own kitchen, I say my opinion--about clothes, behavior, what's consumed from the pantry.
    Sometimes, the kids actually seek out what I'm thinking.
    Sigh. They grow so fast....

    The Paris Hilton episode of Southpark is applicable here.

    And, in this most joyous time of the year, I would like to point out that there should be NO XMAS BEFORE THANKSGIVING!

    Just let Thanksgiving be its own holiday ... that's all I'm asking.

    But nooooooo! Got to get those shoppers into the stores. *sigh*

    No skanky toys for my child if I can help it. Barbie is bad enough.

    And, I agree, that Christmas isn't celebrated before Thanksgiving. *sigh* My oldest was asking when we'd get the decorations out. I said the day after Thanksgiving. Not a day sooner!!!
