Collector’s Item Out the Window

Oh, this site kills me. I must submit…

Our son Bram, who is three, is ‘technical’. He wants to know how things work. He’s a man. I try to understand that, I do. I give him space to discover and respect that he is learning and ALL of that. But this just went too far. I bought this Star Wars piggy bank years ago, and it was to ensure a financially comfortable life one day when it could potentially be worth tons and tons of money. But instead of keeping it in mint condition like I probably should have, I let Bram ‘play’ with it. There went my trust fund, and by the look on Bram’s face, he didn’t exactly expect the thing would break either…

    If it’s any consolation, you can buy a new one on eBay for $5. Or mint in box for $60. Then put it away, far out of reach!

    Normally I’d feel sympathy for the parent, but it’s not like he ended up “getting to it” somehow; she LET him to play with it. No surprise that this happened.

     I think he was trying to re-enact Episode IV… his love for Star Wars is established, which is more valuable than the thing anyway! Also, glad to know it wasn’t a collectable after all!! lol Thx for posting this, SMKR!!
