A week or two ago Husband installed a shelf above each of the boys beds; a shelf for them to store their childhood treasures upon.
Cody’s shelf: stuffed Rooster given to him by some nice radiology technician at Children’s Hospital last year when the MRI machine was broken and we had to wait, an empty green Tabasco box with a piece of orange paper rolled up and taped (his telescope), a small jar of paperclips, a plastic butterfly, silver jar from the Tooth Fairy containing his two baby teeth, a plastic green lei from God knows where, and a small jar with two golden dollar coins from the Tooth Fairy.
Carter’s shelf: Owl and moose Weebles, a small plastic spider, a stuffed parrot that used to be mine when I was little, and a fish or shark looking hot wheel car.
If I had a small shelf above my bed I would put upon it a little vase of wildflowers, my much loved 1930 copy of Archy and Mehitabel by Don Marquis, and a couple framed photos of the boys.
What items would you put on your shelf?
