Micah: Mommy, I want a new train set.
Micah loves train and is always asking for a new train set. The thing is...
Mommy: But you already have so many trains. More than you can play at a time. And you always break the tracks. Some of your trains can still go, but they have no tracks, so they can't run. And some of them are broken because you crash them. So how to buy you new ones? It's just wasting money.
But at the back of my mind, a little voice asks: But isn't this how play is suppose to be? Toys aren't meant to last forever anyway.
How now brown cow?
