Help – I’m Enrolling our Child in Enrolling in SAA

It all started out so innocently.

Just one here, one there.

When our son Kevin was born, people would bring them to us and we would let him have them.

As time went on, he wanted more and more.  We didn’t have the heart to say no.  And it would be embarrassing to the people who were giving them to him if their precious cargo disappeared.

We’d go to a carnival and boom – another one.  We’d go to a birthday party and as a party favor, bam – again!  A relative would bring one here, an EMS worker (long story) would bring one there.  It started off cute, but is now overwhelming.

We allowed it to continue for some time and things are finally coming to a head.

They’re in his bed. They’re in our cars.  They’re in our couches. He brings them everywhere he goes.  And they are so numerous we can’t even keep track of them any more.

His insatiable appetite has become impossible to stop.

We’ve Lost All Control.

We are enrolling Kevin in Stuffed Animals Anonymous (SAA).

While he has a couple favorites, I kid you not, that of the 30 or more he has (I can’t count), he takes inventory every night and he knows when one is missing, when it’s damaged, etc.  He wakes up screaming at 3 AM if little seal isn’t with horsey and if hoo-hoo (his favorite owl) falls through the crack between his wall and the bed.

He’s 4 and he’s getting to be a big boy. And with a new girl in the house; we need a break.

SAA for Kevin!

What ridiculous rituals do your children employ that only a kid can get away with?
