It’s OK to shop on Thanksgiving Day, really

by Daddy Mojo on November 26, 2014

We are 100% on board with getting great deals on things that we need.   We also purchase our gifts far in advance.  Christmas shopping was 90% completed in January and we’ll purchase gift for the next year this year on Black Friday.  We also worked retail or other jobs that always required us to work on holidays.  This isn’t some “I walked uphill both ways to school” post, rather it’s just a nice note to those who want to shame people into thinking the way that they think.

Can parents really not have a favorite son?

The John Deere Gear Force Harvest Action Combine

November 24, 2014

Hint: to make the combine work as well as it should use the vehicle on a flat, hard surface. We tried it on carpet and the vehicle did not pick up the bales of hay. We took it to a stone floor, tried it again and our little combine worked like it was plowing the hay fields of our bathroom. It’s also important to say that it won’t spit out any toy. It will just pick up the little bales of hay that come with the combine. Our 5 year old will love this and be able to work it, while it will frustrate his 3 year old brother. The younger one will really love to push the buttons and see the lights, but won’t be able to work the combine feature.
