As the boys got older, I sorted through their toys and kept a stash of some of their favorites or ones who had sentimental value to me. I hadn’t got them out or thought of them much in a LONG time, but since Maddie’s been around we’ve gotten a few of them out.
These blocks were the kids when they were toddlers. Mixed in with them are some of their old Hot Wheels and farm vehicles and some Jenga blocks. And if you look closely, you can see that Maddie added a “Strawberry Shortcake” Happy Meal toy. Ha! The Jenga blocks very seldom were used as they were intended… mostly they were the edges to imaginary roads or hay bales or something. Nearly every vehicle in there has been painted with flames or some design by Tyler. (He painted everything he could get his hands on… including bowling pins, baseball helmets, computer mice, you name it.)
It’s fun to see them come out again. Have you saved any of your children’s toys? Or do you plan to keep any that have special meaning to you?
