Ducky Diaries: Surprise Eggs

Surprise Eggs

 For anyone who has no idea as to what 'Surprise Eggs' are, let me enlighten you in the ways of this you-tube phenomenon.  Videos of hands opening plastic eggs filled with surprises, that's the big thing......

Mostly toys and candy, maybe a few stickers here and there.

Oh and also, toddlers, for some reason go BAT SHIT over these videos of people opening plastic eggs filled with junk toys. Like they get crazy obsessive. 

Did I mention that MY toddler stumbled upon this abomination while watching a Mickey Mouse show on my phone?  It's now been two months and her brain has been harvested..... 

Our favorite videos are from DCTC with Amy Jo and Brandon and also one other father/daughter duo.  Outside of being a visual time suck, I don't mind them too much especially when they're babysitting my kids.   *Probably shouldn't say that* *but that's me for you*

But......   Zo is getting kind of creepy with the stuff.  At first it started with her leaning in to my ear and eerily whispering "What's inside? What's inside, momma? What's inside???". 

 In the beginning it was just creepy, then hysterical, then I got to the point where I was so traumatized I just screamed " I DON'T KNOW?!?!?! GWENETH PALTROW'S HEAD?????!?!?!?!?!?!?" . 

I'm guessing that wasn't the right answer, especially since there's just no explaining why I'm screaming that Gweneth's head would be in a surprise egg.  I mean, it's not a box, but how many times can someone whisper "What's inside" before your brain automatically goes to that scene in Seven. 

23... 

That's how many times it took before I said  it out loud at least.

Now that she has watched approximately 500 videos of Surprise Eggs, Zo is on this kick. I don't honestly know what it is, I'm so confused. I'll pick a video for her to watch then she runs back to me screaming that she wants " COOL SURPRISE EGGS!", so I tell her I gave her cool surprise eggs and she'll yell back: 
 "NOT THESE ONES, THE COOL ONES!".

 And I'm not even sure what to do because:
 "WHAT DO YOU MEAN ? WHAT ARE COOL SURPRISE EGGS? WHY ARE THESE ONES NOT COOL? WHAT CONSTITUTES COOL  TO A TWO YEAR OLD? IS THIS IT? AM I THE MOTHER OF A TEENAGER? WHAT IS EVEN HAPPENING RIGHT NOW!!!?!?!?!?!??".  

 
Then I spend 20 minutes pulling up videos from everything to Hello Kitty, Spider Man, Frozen, basically every video she has watched a million times until she decides on a 'cool' enough video. 

And that's Surprise Eggs, from a mom's point of view.........

You have no idea how happy I am to see this. I thought that my kids were the only kids who sat and watched endless videos of this on youtube. They watch it on my phone, on their game boys, on the xbox... Literally anywhere they can access the internet they are watching this madness. It is by far the most annoying thing in the world, and now I am left searching for these stupid things at every store I go to, for every birthday, and every gift giving holiday!

Oh I am right there with you! I have actually lost count at this point of how many people are looking for plastic easter eggs and crap to stuff in them for mt kid.

It's nuts! I want to know who figured out that kids would sit for hours and watch people opening things?!
