One of the Dumbest Purchases I’ve Ever Made:

I’ve been waiting all summer for this “cool” little gadget to go on sale.

Literally. Waiting and watching.

I wanted one really badly. And no, not because I thought my kids would like it, but because I thought I’d like it. It looked fun.

The underwater pogo stick finally went on sale, and I bought one.

Big mistake.

My kids fight over it constantly. Constantly.

Plus, I’ve tried it, and it’s not even fun.

But, that’s just my opinion. My kids LOVE it.

Enough to fight over it. All. Day. Long.

    You know, I recently went to a water park with my sister, Ali, and I was so excited, but when we actually got there, it wasn’t quite as fun as I remember it being….hmmmm. Glad the kids are loving it, sorry they are fighting so much, that drives me crazy too. Maybe buy a second one?

    An underwater pogo stick? I didn’t know it would be that easy to jump in water like that.

    But hey, at least it keeps the kids occupied!

    Hahahaha!!! I have never seen that thing! It made me laugh when I saw that picture! Fighting over toys is so annoying. You need to come up with a schedule of use!

    It looks cool, but yeah, I don’t think I would buy it. Our pool probably won’t even let us bring it in!

    It does look like fun! I would have done the same, wait for it to go on sale or clearance out.

    Of course they are going to fight over it. It is a good thing you did not like it or they would never get a turn!

    have a great weekend!
