Barron: What are Toys without Children

The Barron Family

Brittany and Jeremiah walked into their children’s empty playroom as their dog Jackson trailed along to lend a helping paw. He couldn’t exactly lift up any toys or fill boxes, but his rambunctious and playful demeanor made the task less difficult. They packed the toys up since they will be of no use while the kids live with their grandparents in Iowa for the next six months.

They made light of the situation, joking about how they regretted buying some of the louder toys that don’t have “off” buttons–especially the toy race-track that sometimes goes off without any warning.

The moment briefly interrupted the difficulty of the situation at hand.

Six months is a long time to be without the children you love.
