I donated the wrong bag to Goodwill. For Realz.

I’ve been on a cleaning binge, like I’ve dropped off crap at Goodwill three times in the past week. One of those bags happened to include a collection of teddy bears that neither of my kids have looked at for the past year. Or so I thought.

Fast forward to Sunday when we attended a build-a-bear birthday party. Fun, cute, yadadyada. Here’s the problem, my son came home from the party wanting to take out all of his old teddy bears. Ummmm, yeah.

And that’s where my web of lies began. I decided to tell him that I gave them to my prego friend (sorry Traci) so she can give them to her baby which he in turn tells me, “That baby’s not even born yet! Get them back!” I thought he would forget, but for the next two days he kept asking if I had called/emailed Traci to “get my teddy bears back!”

Can you see where this is going? No? Well yesterday I went to the Goodwill where I donated the bears and I found two of them on the shelves. Yes, I bought them back. And I nearly had a throw down with a teddy bear hoarder who had a basket full of them. Seriously, does this stuff only happen to me?

What does this have to do with etsy? I have no idea. Actually, here’s a good tie-in. Timrava makes adorbz teddy bears. I need to put this chick on speed dial for when I accidentally donate something I shouldn’t.

Mother of the year, people. I’m freaking mother of the year.

  • you make me laugh – chances are he’ll never look at those darn double-dipped bears again… that’s children for you… and I’m sure he’ll remember “the time mommy gave my bears away” and bring it up at dinner parties or therapy when he’s a grown man… or, he’ll surprise us both and give it to your friends’ newborn when it arrives. ahh… yeah.

  • oh my gosh, “did you get my teddy bears back?” DYING!!!! and you bought them back !!!!! Ahhhhh, so funny!! Well, funny to us reading about it, maybe not to you:)

  • It’s funny now that I got one of the bears back:) I told him it wouldn’t be nice to take all of the bears from the unborn baby. oh the things you do for your kids!

  • Ah, been there, almost done that: now I pretty much get my children’s buy-in before donating or (shhh) selling their unwanted toys. It can take a while as we bargain through it: “You want to keep these dollhouses, then you have to PLAY with them. If I don’t see you PLAY with them (in the middle of the living room where they have taken up residence), then they GO to some one who WILL play with them!”
    um the dollhouses are still there!
