When we have items we don't want anymore I donate them. If they're big, I put them on the side of the road and someone always takes them. They also always knock on the door to ask if they can take the item, which is nice, but not necessary since it's clearly by the outgoing garbage (I only do it on Garbage Day, just in case an item doesn't get taken).
When the kids are in school there's no problem with it.
Today, however, when the person knocked on the door to see if I was really 'throwing away' the item I had out there, my son (who was making a tent city for himself in the library...where the big front window facing the road is) noticed that in addition to the item being asked about, his little motorcycle was out there.
'Moooooooooooooooooooooom, you're "throwing away" my motorcycle????'
Yes, baby, you're way too big for it now, someone will take it who can still ride it.
The man who took the other item also evidently took the motorcycle. My son is at the front window right now, pathetically saying, "Goodbye my favorite motorcycle," (that he hasn't ridden in over a year because he's too big, lol).
It's wrong to laugh at his dismay, isn't it?? ;)
Happy Thursday all. :)
