Between the sports & the video games, the dinos just aren’t getting out much anymore.
I knew they’d stop playing with them someday but I’m not ready for it to be now.
Or even someday.
We all use different things to mark the passage of time in our children – the things they say, the clothes they wear, their activities.
Mine seems to be the toys they play with, probably because up until video games, I played with the toys as well.
The racecars still get used because Havoc is into cars. The trains were packed up almost two years ago. The clones don’t see much action these days either.
Even the Legos seem to have been left behind. Mayhem has yet to assemble one of his birthday sets.
They are outside playing football or baseball or they are inside playing Plants vs Zombies or Madden NFL or Truck Racing on the Wii.
I suppose soon enough they’ll be texting on their cell phones
Most days I don’t mind seeing them getting older, growing up, having new interests. These are good things.
But dinos spending all their time in the bin makes me sad.
