You don’t realize how little space you have until you become a parent.
Now — my house is by no means puny: at 1000 square feet, I’ve been in Maasai huts a lot cozier, but we need to stay realistic about how much we can fit in our home. With a 2-year old running around and another little one on the way, when we’re not buying him the cool toys we come across in our daily travels, he’s never wanting for anything with his Grandmas, Grandpas and plenty of aunties and uncles to lavish him with gifts when they see him.
In short, Casa de Palmer’s already plenty stocked to keep Little Man entertained.
So when the VTech Go! Go! Smart Wheels Ultimate RC Speedway came in the mail, I did what any rational parent whose house is already filled with too many toys would do… I hid it from him and stuffed it in the trunk so we could keep it at Grandma’s and Grandpa’s as a permanent fixture.
