the same for the action heros... get a box/basket and tell ds he can keep as many fit in the box... im so dreading the barbie phase...and currently dealing with hotwheels for ds5...
when all else fails cut to the chase w. the kids and tell them we are goign to have room for xx boxes etc... what do you want, what can go?

One poster a while back said something I thought was neat. At Chirstmas time she said her and her family do:
Something you want
Something you need
Something to wear
Something to read
My dh and I have been doing this for the past two years and I really like it. Even if the something to read is a gift certificate.
Yet what is an appropriete way to say: No gifts but he could use such and such ( is that pushy/rude?) Or we could use a pass to the park.
What is the correct tactic to follow on this?
