But even what seem like good ideas can have some glitches along the way, right? Well, when Sam came down this morning to see a good chunk of his toys were missing he said, "Did I throw those toys Mommy? Did you take them away? Did you give them to another boy that will like them?" The poor kid thought I shipped all of his toys off to another little boy! You see, we have a rule here that anytime a toy is thrown, it's taken away for the day. So that explains why he thinks I took the toys away, but you may wonder why he thinks another little boy has them. Well, I admit it, I once told him in the heat of the moment after he had been throwing trains Sydney's direction that maybe we should give the train set to a boy that would take nice care of it. So I tried to tell him that no, I did not send his toys to another little boy, and I tried to explain the rotation concept but I think until he sees those toys back on that living room floor he's going to think they are in some other little boy's room. Poor little guy! Why must he remember EVERYTHING I've ever said!
