am I the only one?

At least twice a year your child (ren) get tons of presents. Am I the only one who tries to put almost like rules on what my child is allowed to recieve? Like, I dont want him getting legos or anything with small pieces. My husband ignored me and bought legos anyways for christmas and now I find little legos laying around EVERYWHERE! I also dont want big toys. I cannot tell you how much I stress to all the relatives how hard it is to store huge toys in a two bedroom apartment, but of course we always end up lugging at least one giant car track or electric car or even giant teddy bears. They are all great toys and my son loves them all, I just have no room nor patience to clean it all up everyday. Maybe im just being selfish but those are the only restrictions I have other than no beebee guns until I think hes mature enough to handle them. Does anyone else do this or am I just crazy?

We try to offer suggestions for things he needs instead of telling people what not to get. I also donate things that I don't want in my house to daycare or Salvation Army :)

I have a TINY house, I don't feel bed about having to clean out toys every now and then.

Its the tiny itty bitty pieces of toys that are a pain, like I said legos. He can have toy cars trains and stuffed animals just nothing gigantic. I usually tell them he likes cars and trains but we really dont need anything huge.

And I do usually 'clean out' his toys a month or so before his birthday and Christmas, that way we have room for his new ones.
