“Mom, we’ve decided we’re gonna have a yard sale to sell off all of our old, junky, broken-down toys. I bet we can get a ton of money and then you can take us to Toys “R” Us so we can buy all new toys. We’re just gonna chuck ’em out in the front yard now and see what happens. Isn’t that a great idea?” Jay-8 speaking on behalf of Anna-11 & Will-10
Although I’m tempted at the thought of removing toys from my home, past experience has taught me that this plan will only end in disaster. Can you see the flaws? Can you hear the crying? I can. So, in an effort to maintain my sanity while poking fun at my children and parenthood, I thought it would be entertaining to make a little game out of their brilliant plan. It will be a sort of Highlights Magazine Hidden Pictures Game meets Find The Holes In Their Crazy Plan Game, but without the pictures. Get it? Ok. Now start counting and list the flaws. On your mark, get set, go!
