Slippers and toys
June 1, 2013

slipperstoysSon: I can see my gorilla feet slippers on top of the wardrobe waiting to go in the loft! Will you give them to someone else?

Mum: I don’t know yet – maybe.

Son: We could sell them? We could take them to a shop and offer a pack for sale with the other toys that are in there and someone could buy it – isn’t that a great idea? We could take them to Tesco’s.

Mum: It’s a very good idea. Tesco’s wouldn’t be the right shop to take them to though, because it doesn’t sell second-hand things, only new things.

Son: I know, I’ve got a better idea! We could take the slippers to a slipper shop and the toys to Toys ‘R’ Us!

Mum: Good thinking, but those shops would still only sell new things. We could take them to a charity shop in Stony Stratford.

Son: What’s a charity shop?

Mum: They sell used things, and the money they get for selling them goes to different causes; there’s one for animals, –

Son: So animals get the money?

Mum: Well, the money pays for animals without a home to have food and a home. But there are other charity shops too, where the money gets used for other good reasons. Or we could post a message about them in an online shop called eBay, where we would get most of the money.

Son: Let’s do that, so I can have the money for my money box.

Mum: So YOU can have the money?!

Son: Yes… I’ll give you half if you like?

Slippery goals
February 23, 2013

slipperygoalsD: You can wear slippers to Vikki’s in half term – you really CAN, because I saw some of the other children wearing slippers. But… I’d better wear my trainers because I’m going to Sports Camp and if I put my slippers on to go to Sports Camp I’d kick the ball and it would hurt my feet. Or I’d kick the ball and my slipper would just fly off.

Me: Yes, playing football in your slippers wouldn’t work very well would it?

D: No.

Non-slip slipper socks
February 2, 2013

nonslipD: Nanny and Grandpa got them for me – they’re slipper socks. But you can’t slip in them – do you know why?
Me: Have they got rubber pads on the bottom?
D: Yes. And they make your feet stick. Not like – pppppfoh! [Makes a sound like a sink plunger] And your feet aren’t stuck all day long – that would be boring, just standing there in the same place all day, looking at the same thing. But I tried, and I couldn’t slip in them.
