Happy Birthday, Brad!

My kids are talking about garbage and recycling. Fortunately for me, the video that we watch while I get the promo ready for nap, Handy Manny, had an episode where the magical, talking tools and their high owner (seriously, he thinks his tools are alive) made furniture for a dollhouse from trash! Yay!

Fortunately for me, someone donated a dollhouse to the CDC this week! My life is as amazing as a doped-up handy man. We rolled with it and made furniture out of garbage, which is my favorite thing to do in real life, too.

I was transported back to childhood, where my Barbie’s bed was a small pillow, the side lamp was made from a chess pawn and a toothpaste cap, and other bits and pieces made up the rest. Definitely good times. 🙂

    I don’t remember playing with recycled items, but I did have some imagination playtime with action figures, and I’m sure various household items were involved.

    We really enjoyed giant boxes, like the ones appliances might come in.
