Parenting Tip #379 – Honor The Dead (Toy Stores)

toy stores parenting tip 379

My kids talk about Toys R’ Us like it’s a deceased relative.

Any time the word toys gets mentioned, they both bow their heads and muttering something like “yeah…too bad Toys R’ Us is gone.”

I’m not sure if it’s because they miss the thrill of going to a toy store — because buying kid’s toys online isn’t as much fun — or they assume companies just stopped making toys.

Because they never see toys at:

  • Target
  • Dollar Store
  • Grocery store
  • CVS
  • Doctor’s office
  • Leaving a museum
  • Entering a museum
  • The boardwalk
  • God damn everywhere

Don’t get me wrong. I’m bummed out too.

No need to honor the dead toy stores by being somber and sullen. They still come in contact with toys at every single turn

They’ll get plenty of opportunities to beg me for stuff for their entire childhood.
