About once a month (give or take) Josh's parents take Caleb and Sarah for a night. They enjoy their sleepover and enjoy playing with Papa so very much.
Last night was one of those times. So while the "older" kids were out of the house, Josh and I got ourselves in gear and began taking out all of the toys that the kids no longer play with. My dining room table was so full of stuff, and this has freed up more room for the new toys that they received for Christmas. Josh took out the back seat of the van, and our van is now packed and ready to take the toys to Goodwill (we were going to take them to the Caring Center, but they are closed today).
But...for a brief moment...I thought of the scene in Toy Story 2 when the mom was gathering toys for a yard sale and how upset it made the toys. It sort of made me sad, especially as I packed up two cute baby dolls that Sarah barely played with at all. I even thought one of them was pouting at me.
I sure hope those toys handle it ok. I hope they are happy in their new home. And if I find one of them back at my house someday, I'll know what hard work it was to get here. I've seen both Toy Story movies you know.
Maybe You Need This As Much As I Do
