I buy them because I am sick and tired of driving cars, trains of whatever it might be again and again and again. I NEED something new to play with. I NEED something new!
The other day, I gave in. I let Lucas get what he wanted.
I am kicking myself everyday when he asks me to drive with him some more, back and forth, back and forth on the road. Why didn't I insist on Legos like we first talked about? I like building with Legos and he loves them too.
But I caved, and so I drive.. back and forth and back and forth.
Don't be surprised if someday one of my kids ends up with a real cash register.
