Toy Recommendation: Snap circuits and Magformers

I am getting a cold.  A bad, coughing, hacking, can't breathe, sinus headache cold.

Which is yucky.

But a lovely relative sent the kids some new toys, so our morning was surprisingly great.

The big kids played with this:

And the littles played with this:

It was awesome.

Note: I do not receive a consideration for mentioning these products.  The link goes to my Amazon associates account, so I get a few pennies if you make a purchase getting to Amazon from there, but neither Elenco nor Magformers has ever offered me anything.

I love these toys and they're awesome, is all.

The toddlers have two kinds of memories: things that happened yesterday and things that happened "westerday" or any time in further past than yesterday.

I think they found and filled a gap in the English language.  We don't really have a single word for "happened a while ago."

As long as they are this little and perpetuate the usage between them, we have a valid new word.

Westerday.  It's a thing. Get on it.

It has been an... interesting couple of years.

I've been away from my blog processing everything that's been happening and also adding another little cuddle bug to our crew.

This year is a year for new adventures: I'm getting my Masters, the kids are progressing in their education and I've got a new job I love very much.  Teaching high school writing makes me very happy.

It's good to be back!
