memory archive – day 46


So far I’ve hardly added any bigger items; the ones that are piling up in storage. Take this playpen: It clearly failed in fulfilling its actual purpose… 

I got it in London, shortly before our move to Japan. How prepared I am, I thought. My son wasn’t even crawling yet but I already thought about how to protect him when he eventually would. Looking back, I think the longest he ever stayed happily in there was five minutes, usually less. The playpen quickly changed its purpose to, firstly, a ball pool followed by a place for the kids to dump all their toys in when it was tidy-up time. I hope I will find someone who happily takes over this item – the largest toy storage out there, I should be advertising it as.
