Silly Bandz!!!

Have these Silly Bnadz hit your school yet? Well if not- BEWARE, because they are coming. One day several weeks ago, Brenner came home from school with a colored elastic band on his wrist. I asked him about it and he said it was a silly band. I thought, that is silly, we at least had "Jelly Bracelets" that were more than a colored rubber band back in the day. Well turns out they turn into shapes when you take them off your wrist, some glow in the dark, some glitter, and the new ones are even tie-dyed!?!?! Brenner found another on the playground and started trading with his classmates. In no time he had turned those two into a wrist full and both boys are addicted!!! They are kinda cool (even the high school kids get into them, as Cayden made a trade with one of our priests at church last Sunday) Mia loves them too, but is having a hard time with the trading thing, she gave away her favorite (a pink glitter butterfly) the other day for something she later decided she did not really want and has cried about it ever since. Brenner, being the good big brother that he is, is on a mission to find her another one but Cayden on the other hand is just out for himself!!! He said: "trade one of my dinosaurs or sharks for a butterfly, are you crazy!"

Funny you should mention them. I don't believe they have "hit" here yet, but today while shopping for a "different than normal" gift at the Cracker Barrel, I did see three different packs of these "silly bands". I picked them up, looked at them, thought they were cool, and put them back on the shelf as I wasn't sure what you'd do with them. COOL!

I have yet to see or hear about these "BANDS" but I am sure they will be adorning the wrists of all the kids here soon. If we get a pack with a butterfly we will be sure to send it to Mia!

I know they haven't hit my sister's area out in AZ.. both Garrett and Nathan have some of these "silly bands". I don't think they are half as cool as slap bracelets! One day I was in -Live Laugh Love in Loganville and 2 people came in looking for those darn things (no I was not one of them- also they were sold out and can't keep them in stock). Someone is making a killing off those things.. wish it was me!
