It’s been a while since we’ve gotten into one of the greatest reasons imaginable to work with children. Is it their laughter? The hope you can see in their eyes? The possibility of having an impact on their future?
I guess. But mostly it’s the toys.
Remember wondering what your toys got up to, back when you were a kid? Clearly they lived their own lives, and carried on relationships and dramas once you left the room. (I might have just recently watched Toy Story 3.) I think therapeutic toys would be even more interesting to watch.
The child figurines carry the burden of helping actual children to work through their issues fairly well.
Well, this is going to be an investigation. How did this baby’s arm get so unnaturally twisted? And also get fused to a ball? I’d say we’re looking at neglect, at a minimum.
This is just a kid in an awesome duck sweater. Nothing to discuss, unless anyone knows where I can get that in an adult size.
The adults get a little more difficult to control.
Ugh, Tom, always trying to show off the intellect. You know that’s actually a Dan Brown novel, wrapped in a “War and Peace” book jacket.
All right, bringing back the preppy look, I can get into that, and OH MY GOD WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR EYEBROWS?!
OK, just act cool. Sophia may look harmless, but purple and coral? They’re actually gang colors. She’s a member of the Stewarts, I’m afraid.
Seriously, Chester?! Chester is supposed to be…on sabbatical. Whatever, as long as he doesn’t try to volunteer in the day care again, we’re cool.
Um, hey Linda. Nice purse. But maybe try something a little more current? H&M has very reasonable OH MY GOD YOUR MOTHER DID YOUR EYEBROWS, DIDN’T SHE?
Hey, that’s nice, Joey’s mom is getting involved in his scout troop! What’s that? This is just her outfit? Oh, dear…
The single raised eyebrow says, “I’ve got a secret.” That along with the suspicious package puts Grandma Sylvia right on the no-fly list.
Seriously, someone please take me to this badass sweater store!
And so ends another saga in the lives of our toys. Tune in next week for answers to your burning questions: Why is Grandma Sylvia taking flying lessons? Does Sophia mean it when she says she’ll, “cut a bitch?” Will SocialJerk get a new sweater? Did…Chester, that’s it, I’m calling your parole officer!
