Webkinz are the devil!

Webkinz is like crack. Ok, it is complete and total crack.. of the stuffed animal variety. Kids all over, including my own, are addicted to these fluffy little dolls. They are the Beanie Babies of the new millennium. I bought the first ones for the kidlets while we were away on vacation. I help them set up their accounts and turn them loose. They bought silly things like bathing suits and pools, before we had the chat about actually needing to feed the pet. Though, would Webkinz actually have a pet die? I hope not.....

Then I figured out the "daily" things that needed to get done, like Wheel of WOW, Wishing Well, jobs, and other things. I wished someone passed me some cash when I did the "dailies" around here... like the Sweep O'Floor, Black Hole Vacuum, Dishes Sorter, Fluff and Fold. Life would work out much nicer. Instead, I find myself, answering ridiculous questions about if a mudburger is a pig's favorite food and if bats are blind. I refuse to admit which ones I got wrong... in the 5-7 age category.

I log in, after they head off to bed, and well... earn them money, resist the urge to decorate for them, keep myself from building up gardens and selling silly things. Yesterday, they got playing time taken away for today. However mean my mommy heart can be, these little Webkinz gremlins have me loggin in and taking care of the daily stuff. I swear they have sucked out components of my brain, and replaced them with Bingoz and Gem mining. These things cost 9.99 to 12.99, My kids have 2 each... I have spent 50 bucks on stuffed animals... and might. spend. more. I converted a friend today, she headed out, while on the phone with me, to become part of the "W" cult. Am I ashamed to say I helped contribute to the delinquency of a Mom? Heckings no, now she and I can share Webkinz tips along with who's hot in Hollywood. I might need to go to Webkinz detox.... after I get my daily kinzcare.
