THE GOOD WITCH?
At a Family Fun Fest last Friday night one lady was making all kinds of balloon shapes for the kids, and while it is great to see everyone look like Unicorn or have a cute little puppy dog they can pop with a dart, this lady didn't not know what she was getting herself into. While she must have thought she was some sort of balloon fairy, in the end she was most certainly going to be the evil ballon witch that makes every little girl and boy cry themselves to sleep. Kids will soon find out that all balloon giraffes do not live forever. I have seen my boys cry for hours over a lightsabre that popped, even though I was able to turn what was left into some sort of magic bird. Of course the bird too does not last forever as he joins the many balloon creatures in the balloon heaven somewhere, or make that HELL.
OH SO PRETTY
Sure balloons in the right setting can be OK. Could you imagine the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade without them? It just wouldn't be the same. But alas, I would never go out and get my kid an oversized Snoopy balloon, those things take like 50 people to make sure they don't float away. But sometimes those balloons don't make it either and I would hate to see my kids reaction to that. OH DEER!
