While at a consignment sale a few weeks ago, I spied a vacuum for $2. Of course, I had to buy it. Seriously, they love to "clean" so this was perfect training for all the chores they will have to do in a few years. Ha! For about 2 weeks, it's all they played with, and fought over. They'd often refuse to turn it off. I dreamt with that vacuum noise in the background. Yes, my own darn fault, but they love it. I also bought them tinker toys (in the retro can!), chutes and ladders, and Mr Potato head.
