I'm sure all parents have those toys that you all just love.... for the batteries to finally die. I have read of some taking extra measures to ensure the death of toys (baths, CJ), but we just let our toys eventually stop working. Some toys seem to have never ending life. That is annoying, yet they are fun for little babies so that is good. Then there are ones you just can't stand listening to and are tempted to throw a party when they finally do die.
There have been a few toys that have died that have since been resurrected. Not of my own will, but because of the kind pleadings of my children. There is a school bus (little people) that has recently gotten new batteries. It is so much more fun to play with school buses again (since watching the Magic School Bus). Now Grant has discovered his old fire truck again.
This was one of those toys I never wanted to hear again (ya thanks again, Grandma). However, it did make him happy. Can't you tell by the look on his face :).
Once one was fixed then Sandra had to find the second one (Talmage's) and get batteries for that one too. She is also very pleased. I guess it's cheaper than buying new toys and they feel like they got a new toy... what a great thing batteries are.
Well, now we have a lot of 2 alarm fires going on in our house. The one rule of the fire trucks is that if the babies are sleeping (which seems more often then not) then the fire trucks must play outside. I wonder if our neighbors think that suddenly there seem to be a lot more fires in our neighborhood... the sirens are pretty loud.
The things we are willing to suffer through to enjoy our children's happiness :).
