Spooktacular Sunday: Monster High
No books or movies this weekend. Yep, you guessed it, I am amazingly behind on all things blog related. Every summer it's the same thing for all parents: you think having the little monsters go back to school will be the best thing ever, better than a half naked Alcide even, only once the school week begins it is just one thing after another. Total chaos! School supplies, uniforms, lunch food, money for books, money for class supplies, homework, cranky kids, tired kids, parents that suck, school parking, and the cherry on top of that lunatic sundae is that I am also supposed to head back to the playground for monitor duty and it's 100 damn degrees outside.
*okay. take a deep breath. relax*
Thanks for letting me rant. Since our usual feature for today is aimed at children and the young adult crowd I thought it might be cool to post about my daughter's latest obsession... Monster High! These Monster High dolls are wicked cool and I wish they had them when I was a kid. It's also quite fun to hunt around for them and watch her eyes light up when we find a new doll. Each Monster High doll is the son or daughter of a monster and they all attend the same school. The "lesson" is that it's totally okay to be different, at least according to the little cartoons on the website. Our favorites are: Draculaura (vampire), Spectra (ghost), Ghoulia (zombie), and Lagoona (sea creature). They have books available as well so expect reviews in the coming weeks.
Do any of you have Monster High fever?
