Reasons I am a Terrible Mother #566

Today we took a trip to the toy store, and bought a pair of Nerf N-Strike Elite Jolt guns. About a quarter the size of regular Nerfs, they’re easy to hide in your pocket, and bring out during quiet moments of the day.


I mean, the KIDS can bring them out. Obviously.

After all, what sort of mother would do something like THIS?

Slow motion video is tricky, it turns out, but I think well worth it for the overall effect. Check out that BOUNCE.

    My other half and his brother love them. They still play with them whenever he comes round our house. I guess you never get too old for a bit of NERF fun…

      Oh, NERF guns are amazing. They’re foam darts so completely harmless but they go wicked fast and REALLY far.
