My husband and I cycle toys out. We do this so our living room doesn't become completely taken over by kid stuff and also so we don't end up on a TLC show about hoarders. So today when our four year old asked if we could go downstairs to the furniture room (furnace room) to look for the power ranger with the two faces and giant claws for hands, we said, "Sure, but pick another toy to take downstairs."
He disappeared into his room and returned to offer to us with outstretched arms... his alarm clock.
Nice try, Bucko!
