Remember when...

Do you remember some of the fads you were part of growing up as a kid? I was part of many: jelly shoes, jelly bracelets, Jams, charm necklaces, Cabbage Patch kids, etc. The list could go on and on. Well...my kids are officially into their first fads. Yes, I said fads...with an "s" because being part of 2 fads is better than 1!

Zhu Zhu Pets

So I know the Zhu Zhu Pets were a hard to get to this past Christmas. We were lucky that at that time our kids didn't ask for one because it was near impossible to find them. Well, my good friend Lindsay go up super early one December morning along with her husband and parents to stand in line for the hyped up Zhu Zhu Pet. They succeeded and she ended up giving the kids each one for Christmas. That's when the craze started for them. We have since added a few Zhu Zhu's to the mix as you can see...

Silly Bandz

These things remind me of how crazy I went as a child over jelly bracelets. If you don't know what they are, they are colored rubber bands in different shapes. Someone is making a killing off these things. Sydney is a little more into them than Jordyn, but I'm guessing that's because she goes to school with a building full of kids wearing Silly Bandz. Santa brought the girls Silly Bandz in their stocking not realizing what a huge deal they were (score one for Santa!). Since then Silly Bandz in our house have been picking up steam in the popularity department. Thanks to Uncle Joey for giving the girls a huge bag of them on Memorial Day. I was very proud of the girls how they sat together and divided the bracelets up evenly. There was no fighting involved! They even saved a few to give cousin Maisie.

I would love to hear what your favorite fad was back in the day...
