Still no toys

Still no toys

The weekend just gone we went out for dinner. It’s half term next week so I asked Bob what his plans were for the week.

“Probably nothing” was his response. The following conversation followed:

“Will your mum not take you anywhere?”
“No”
“Does she not take you places?”
“Not really”
“Will she make things with you?”
“What, like my dinner?”
“No, things with you – drawing, or crafts?”
“Definitely not”
“Does she play with you”
“No”
“So what does she do?”
“She replies to her emails on her phone, she gets a lot of emails”
“Really?, That’s all she does, all day every day?”
“Yes”
“Right… Has she bought any toys for you at your new house?”
“No”
“Is that not going to be a bit boring?”
“No, I can play on my laptop all day”

They’ve been there 4 weeks, she’s bought new furniture for the living areas, ordered the internet and painted the house, but not bought toys for her Son. In his room he has a bed, a wardrobe and 3 action figures.

So we went and spent £60 on toys for him. At least he has something else to do now – providing she doesn’t sell them, which is why he never wants to take toys from ours to his other house.
