For Those Who Have Been Hurt Trying to Make Kids Happy: Toys Are Heroes

Disponible en Español aquí

This morning while I was cleaning my place, I found several toys whose job is all done. They have lost their heads, feet, and even, their ears have been knotted for ever. But no matter how bad the kids treat them, these guys never complain. They’re always there for them.

Some of them will save their lives (or their plastic), if I find their missing parts by the end of the day. Others will be gone forever.

This post doesn’t really need much wording. Pictures are clear and concise.

All these toys have been great helpers at my task of parenting and they have given my kids a lot of reasons to smile. They have kept my children busy and happy, but we always knew they were not forever.

So before letting them go to the garbage can, I want to dedicate them this photo-shoot to say: Thanks and good-bye guys!

    My daughter pulled out her hair and it came out with a piece from her plastic head. We haven't been able to put her hair back in place. She seems happy anyway.

    His ears are knotted forever. I'm not sure who did it, but I know there's no way to undo the knot.

They can destroy all that they touch, but by the end of the day they become angels back again.
