the joys of boys...


I have often wondered why my boys like junk so much. who knows? But if you can't eat it, don't want it, if it's broken or can give your tetanus, then you are sure to find it in Tanner or Garrett's "Collection". Usually there is much crying and carrying-on when I gather the "collection" up and put it in its rightful place (the trashcan) but today everyone is at school....:) This is some of the rad stuff I found in Tanner's "collection". Maybe you can play "Eye-Spy"!
emply sandwich baggie. 2 popsicle sticks glued together. pink plastic cap. ring from a milk jug. innards of a pen. gold thingy. round battery. broken piece of plastic. pink bead. red berry. piece of a broken blue cup. baby sock. silver wire connector. random molded plastic. 2 rocks. 3 pieces of black yarn. price tag. peanut. 'stripped' hot wheels car. candy/gum wrappers. torn bits of paper. shirt tag. 6 pencils without tops. 2 rubber bands. pieces of a broken blue balloon. twig. 6 pencil tops (in perfectly good condition...why were they removed?) broken white balloon (was once a balloon animal) 2 broken rubber bands. brown wire from a fake flower. plastic coated wire tie. rusty beer cap. 2 bread ties. wad of used tape. broken pencil. broken crayon pieces. army guy missing a foot. 4 chunks of eraser.
did I miss anything? I can assure you that this is all very valuable... send check or money order now!

best collection ever!! I'm proud of you for being able to identify everything. I think underneath my bed probably looks a lot like that.

under your bed is one thing...also its probably been compiling since 2006, this on the otherhand was in a shoebox and I can see that most of it is only about a month old. hahaha.

side note:
about 30 minutes after Tanner got home from school he said "mom, I need more rubber bands!"
