Toy Paradise

with one comment

We went to a friend’s house over the weekend, and they had rooms of toys. ¬†Or rather, multiple rooms in which you could find toys stored or in the open. Kai took awhile to warm up but by the end of the morning, she was so into the rooms for toys that she asked “Can we come back Sometime?!?!” in quite the plaintive/wistful voice.

It was interesting, then, to have an older relatives come by our place and express that she thought we had a lot of toys – I feel that we have the right amount, not too much to take up too much space, just enough that the kids can make a real mess. It made me wonder how many toys I had as a kid, do kids these days just have more toys? What did I do as a kid? Have things changed so much? Or does our relative misremember how much her daughter had as a child? Hmm.
