As I got out of my truck, I noticed something new on the sidewalk in front of the store. It was a giant kennel.
To show how inappropriate my mental reflexes are, my first thought was, "I know some families in the ward that could use one of these for their kids."
I walked around to the front of the kennel. Imagine my surprise when I saw the tag!
A "Kid Kennel?" For $295? I was aghast. Clearly this was somebody's idea of a sick joke.
I mean, $300? That is so wrong. Most families that have enough children to justify a Kid Kennel aren't going to have an extra $300 just lying around. You can get an entire trampoline with net for that price! Granted, the kennel was really nice, and looked well built...
After giving it some thought, I decided it would be best for me if I didn't pass judgment on people who bought them. The majority of the FOMLs have now left the nest, and the two remaining don't really need that much space.
So, I have no intention of buying one - and I will not condone buying one. But I will concede that I have never served in a Nursery calling, so I reserve the right to change my mind.
