One of the side effects of having four kids: I collect things. Not always on purpose. Not usually on purpose, actually. I pick things up off the floor. I confiscate them from children who are fighting over them, or using them in unsavoury ways.
At the end of the day, I often wind up with quite a collection.
This was Friday’s assortment: a shaker egg (they were throwing it at each other), one AA battery, a knight’s headgear, and one wheel from a Lego replica of Tow-Mater from Cars.
When I emptied my pockets on Wednesday night, here’s what I found:
A green super-bouncy ball, a single Cheerio, a Lego trailer hitch, and the Imaginext knight who probably goes with Friday’s armour.
It’s different every day.
