This school bus was really causing me a lot of anxiety today. I’ve kept it around for awhile but it’s not something that I really need nor did I think I was very attached to it. It does turns out that it’s a Fisher Price school bus. I was thinking it was Little Tykes but it’s not. It’s Fisher Price and I collect Fisher Price stuff which is maybe why I have it in the first place. Or it’s possible that I bought it for my twins when they were babies but I don’t really recall them even playing with it very much. So why has this one toy been such a struggle to let go? (Which I didn’t do by the way)
Besides the fact that it’s made by Fisher Price, I do have one more reason to keep it. It’s a very durable toy and great for toddlers. I have two kids getting married later this year so sometime within the next two years, I’m thinking that at least one of them will have a baby. Then when they come see me, I will have toys here for the baby or babies to play with. I don’t want to keep hundreds of toys around the house for them but I think this one is worthy of keeping, for a few more years anyways!
It took me forever to come to this decision. I was really stressing out about it and finally decided that I should just keep it. It wasn’t worth the anxiety that I was putting myself though trying to figure out what to do with it. Although there’s not much room left in the storage room, I figured that this toy was small enough that I could put it in there for now. Maybe it won’t make the cut on a future decluttering attempt but for now, it’s staying.
