Last night we put out our old entertainment stand by the curb. Over the holiday we upgraded to a different one. This shelf serves us well. It was the first piece of furniture Kevin and I ever bought together. We had it 13 years. It was still pretty sturdy, just didn't serve our needs anymore. I was kind of sad to take out. Well anyway, as the boys were getting all the recycling out, someone stopped by and took a look at it. First Daniel comes rushing in to tell me that "someone is looking at our old entertainment stand!" giggle, giggle. I just told him, "that's nice, put out the rest of the recycling". A few minutes later, Neil came in and says to me, "some lady was asking me questions about our entertainment shelf. She wanted to know if it was broken. Mom, I just told her no, it might need some cleaning up but it was good, we just don't need it anymore." How grown is he? About 10 minutes later, Michael takes the final trash out and comes in giggling, "Mom! Someone took our entertainment stand!!" All three boys got a good giggle out of that. I'm not really sure why this struck them so funny but it was amusing to see how tickled they were. I hope that entertainment stand serves whomever picked it up well. I will probably see it on the curb somewhere in the neighborhood next week, unless someone likes having my kid's signatures on their furniture, LOL.
