Cheap for a Reason
Ever since Cameron's friend Ben told him about his collection of Transformers, Cameron has decided that he wanted to have a collection of something. A few weeks ago he decided that he wanted to collect rocks. He went into our landscaping with a plastic bucket and collected probably over a hundred rocks. I told him he had to choose about 20. I think he ended up with closer to 40. The rocks went directly into a plastic bag and into his closet, never to be looked at or even spoken of again.
Today, while traveling back from an outing about 30 minutes from our house, Cameron decided that he wanted to start a new collection. I figured he was going to tell me he wanted to collect leaves, or cars, or even Happy Meal toys. But instead, he matter-of-factly declared that he was going to start a collection of broken sandals.
Maybe I better stop buying my kids' shoes at Kmart.
