So, I got to thinking about Christmas this year, and mostly how in god's name we're going to afford it. And then I started thinking about my nieces and nephews and how so-and-so would totally love this toy that my dd has and how her brother would so love this toy that my ds has ( neither of which they play with anymore). And I got to thinking, wouldn't it just be great if we could just like, trade for christmas? Instead of buying toys ( which they probably already have or wouldn't like ), we could just pick something that we already have and then trade it.
But then, do I sound cheap suggesting this? My kids are 5,3, and 18 months and their cousins are 7, 4 and 3. So . . . they're probably still young enough to not really care if they don't get "new" stuff, but I just wondered what everyone else thought about this.
Am I being cheap or creative?
