“Standard Issue Spirograph”

Annie has recently become very interested in games, of which we have a bunch in a closet in her playroom.  Games that we’ve just stashed until a later day when the kids are old enough to play them.   Annie has taken note of said stash.

So, the other day when Danny was with the girls, he became the best dad ever, and introduced them to the Spirograph.   Or as Annie calls it the “Spider Crap”  (okay, that’s not what she calls it, but when she says is, I swear to god that’s what it sounds like)

Annie: “Danny, all those drawings are yours and mommy’s?”

Danny:  “No Annie, just mine.  Mommy had her own Spirograph growing up.  They were standard issue for the suburbs.  Welcome to the suburbs, here’s your Spirograph”

This is Danny’s original spirograph.  Circa 1980.  

Keeps them busy for a little while at least, and they’re working out how to make their circles turn out like the picture on the box.
