Tis the Season of Rampant Consumerism
The ads being thrown at our kids are relentless. I get creeped out when Asher repeats Wal-mart slogans to me word per word. We stress homemade gifts around here, and the kids spend holiday money from grandparents etc at the Dollar Store. I wanted to bake gifts this year but first I have to learn how to bake (the kids didn't seem to mind the blobs we made the other night that were supposed to be cookies but I'd like to give the in-laws something less .... blobby).
Question: how do you address the capitalist frenzy of the season?
