Those bins!

I may have only been a mom for a little more than nineteen months…but it didn’t take me long to catch on that most of the overpriced, uncreative toys are…well…unnecessary!

I have a lot of fun trying to find simple little things, that allow Gavin to use his imagination…and that don’t put us in the poor house!

Every now and then I get spoiled, and get an evening “away” to peruse Target or Michaels (last night I got to go to both…alone!!! woohoo!!) and I always check out those bins.  You know….the dollar bins! To be honest…Michael’s tends to have the “cooler” stuff, and last night was no exception.

Bet you can’t guess the secret identity of the toddler behind the (one dollar) masks!

Maybe next year we’ll get extra crafty and make the masks ourselves :)


  1. My favorite is Gav in Kitty one! He looks adorable!!

  2. What a CUTIE!! Next time i go down to Mayo we will have to meet up.
