my mom asked me a few months ago what she should get warner for xmas. (i told her nothing, that he doesn't need anything, but she insisted *sigh*) so I said how about a simple set of wooden blocks? she thought this was a good idea.
so she gives him a set for ages 3+.
some of the blocks of TINY...major choking hazards. I weeded out all the small pieces or ones that look questionably shaped for a baby and now there are less than a quarter left. when I said wooden blocks, I was thinking of good sized alphabet blocks--big cubes that he can't eat! and I thought that my mother, who actually does know how to read, would understand the whole age rating system. oh mom....
I know she meant well, but it's frustrating. and she thinks I'm way over-protective and too much of a worrier, and in a way she's right. but when it comes to things like this, I think I'm justified!
