That's how it goes

It's true what parents say about giving young children toys - they are more interested in the box and wrapping paper than what's inside. However, we still continue to buy the neatest noise-making, sparkly, hippest toys because we think the child will love it. Apparently, despite all my years studying child development, I still fell trap to this phenomenon. I have a desk drawer at school full of stickers - glittery, shiny, holographic, animals, disney characters, princesses, fairies, etc. You name it and I probably have that sticker in my drawer. Wouldn't you know it, today when I asked what sticker one of the kids wanted to work for, he chose the produce sticker off his banana. *sigh*
