Sometimes as adults we put so much value on “stuff.” The other day I took out some red glasses. They were my moms. I honestly never remember her using them. I just always remember them being there. I remember my mom having a China cabinet that was only opened on holidays. Why do we save things so much for special occasions ? Isn’t every day a special occasion ? I have thought that more than once this week
Ok. Pivot to the tape.
I remember when I got this multipack of beautiful colored masking tape. I put it out for a while and the children started really “ wasting “ it. I had paid “ good money “ for that special tape and I didn’t want it wasted.
Let’s think about this. That was about 8-10 years ago. My ideas of what is considered “ waste “ has drastically changed since then. I realize there is value in the pulling and tugging and taping and overuse.
The other day I decided to buy some more tape. After all this tape is ten years old.
Did you hear that? Even with me overseeing the use of the tape so it wasn’t wasted it lasted ten years.
I got the lesson pounded even more when I went to Amazon and saw it was 20.00. $20 y’all to be a soldier over some colored tape and restrict it from children. Isn’t that ridiculous?
It’s funny how your view on life changes over the years. My view on how children should be with me and others has definitely changed. Maybe tomorrow we will make a tape collage.
