While sweetly snuggling with Britan, the following conversation took place:
Britan: “Mom you are chunkin’.”
Me: “Oh, ya?”
Britan: “Yep, You are chunkin’ because of one spot.”
Me: “Where is that?”
Britan: “You are very chunkin’ right there.” he says as he presses on my chest.
Britan then yells: “Mom is chunkin’ on her boobies”
He then rolled around on the bed laughing and repeating what he had said.
Every year for MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) one of our favorite spring service projects is collecting small toys for the children in Haiti through Lifeline Christian Mission. It is the perfect opportunity for spring cleaning as you can collect all the gently used small toys, balls, baby dolls, and “Happy Meal” type toys, etc. that pile up around your house. We don’t often eat fast food so we don’t usually accumulate kids meal type toys that way, but they still seem to pop up everywhere around our house as tokens of friendship from other children, as goody bag gifts, or as treasure box prizes at school where other families get rid of their toys and pass them along to everyone else. However we may get them, they still are excess for our family while they could be a blessing to the children in Haiti who have nothing. So, throughout the year, we bag these little goodies up and save them for this ministry.
If your family or a church or organization would like to get involved in collecting your gently used or new toys for Haiti then there is the info below thanks to my MOPS
Toys for Haiti:
921 Eastwind Dr. Suite 133
Westerville, OH 43081-3363
NO guns & be careful to watch for things w/skulls, demon looking stuff or anything that could be linked to Voodoo.
Things to send: Balls, especially soccer balls. jewelry, hair bows, clips, dominoes, kids musical instruments, jacks, jump ropes, puzzles, marbles, dolls, clay, etch-a-sketch. It would be really nice if they could find some black dolls for the girls if they are purchasing things new. You can also find fun stuff in the toy travel section.
If they are recycling toys just make sure they are in nice condition.
You can just box everything up and mail it to Lifeline.
Get involved in blessing others through this ministry or post if you have other ministry service project ideas to share with others.
