Alf and I had a funny conversation recently; I guess you could call it our brand of romance:
Me: Hey I’ve been thinking about the toys that we should keep around for the grandkids.
Alf: (grinning) Does this mean we’re staying together forever!?
Me: You do know that we don’t need to be together to have grandkids?
Anyway, back to the toys. It’s such a dilemma! I generally have few or no feelings for anything plastic, but even among our plastic toys, there are some nice-looking ones that I’d like to store away for the distant future. And I’ve given away so many plushies in the past that I think we can afford to be sentimental and save a few going forward.
What’ll kill me is having to whittle down our wooden/vintage/handmade collection—how can I ever decide?
Do you already know which of your kids’ toys you’ll be saving?
