You can never have too many toys!

As I look at the floor covered with his toys I wonder.

Is this why I work but have no money in my pocket for myself?

Why my wife and I pay the bills, fill the fridge and manage our money so there’s plenty left over to cover our lounge carpet with Peppa pig toys!

I have dreams of owning a BMW Z4.

Buying a new camera.

Yet when I see him smiling, playing happily with all his toys scattered everywhere my feet seem to land.

I realize my only real dream is to always see him smile.
