Today was our annual community yard sale.
After breakfast this morning, I put the baby in the stroller and we walked around the block, scoping out the houses with toys. We found a big bin of cars and trucks. The oldest immediately set to work piling up the ones he wanted.
"Only pick out what you can carry," I scolded. Then, to the woman hovering near the garage: "Will you take five dollars for all these?"
I traded her four crumpled bills for a plastic grocery bag, and we loaded up his booty. We arrived home with a Batman car, a Batman helicopter, a Bat House and a police car that transforms into a dog when you press a switch on the back bumper.
The boys played happily all morning while I cleaned the house. That in itself was well worth the four dollars.
