Cameron's House of Fun

Fatherhood, politics, education, random thoughts (heavy on the random thoughts) and stuff (always stuff).

Birthday Party Part 1 - the morning after.


So we're going to have to make a serious attempt at culling Lucas' old toys, becuase I think the number he has just went up by a third.

A large meassure of it falls into the category of Trucks, Buses and other things with wheels. He also got some more Playmobile stuff, and some books/cartridges for his Leappad thing. We ate too much. We drank quite a lot. Lucas and Anthony (his cousin) destroyed our house.

Everyone had fun.

(there will be pictures)

Every year or so, you'll have to do a purge of obsolete toys lest they overrun your house. (It's amusing watching them suddenly develop a life-or-death attachment to old toys they haven't touched in years, but I digress...)
This method works great: Buy a giant rubbermaid container, and fill with old scuffed up, haven't-been -touched for an-eternity, no-good because pieces-are-missing, the-sound-drives-you crazy and my personal faves; the ones that tempt you to call emergency after stepping on them bare-foot in the night when going for a pee. I fucking hate those ones. ANYWAY, the two of you designate them "old toys for storage" which will go (in my case ) in the garage. Every week or so, he'll ask to see the toys again, just to make sure they're still there. The visitation requests become less frequent as his new toys take all his time, and in about two months he's forgotten about them.
That's when they go to the fucking land fill. Repeat as needed.

I have also heard that as they get older you can help them participate in charity by getting them to select still good toys that someone else would enjoy but that they are too young for.

Also - a lot of it is plastic and can be recycled.

I know the space in question - good luck to you guys about the toys...I have visions of a horror film set kind of like that old classic "Freaks" -- rainy night going into your creepy basement and the dead and dismembered toys come alive!!
