Should I really let my kids play with hard rubbish? In their bedroom?
I was pondering this thought as I tucked them in to bed and noticed their new favourite toys … pet beds I found in Alphington hard rubbish this year. I found two matching ones. Dark grey with little black paws on them.
Now every day I notice new toys in them. At the moment it’s the dog family. And the other day I recall that the dogs were wrapped in little blankets in them – obviously going to sleep.
And before that I noticed them full of teddy bears with bandages. They must have been a hospital then …
I didn’t originally intend them as children’s toys when I collected them mind you. I got them for the dog and the cat. But the cat is too big and fat for either of them and the dog wasn’t keen on them.
They sat around for a couple of days before Scarlett snaffled them and found a home for them on the end of her bed. And so it is … Hard rubbish in the bedroom.
Do your kids play with hard rubbish, or am I the only one?
