The kids that I babysit keep throwing toys down in the air vents in their room.
I don’t know why they think that it’s so much fun to do that, but this is the third time that I have caught them doing it.
I think that they must think that it’s funny to see their toys disappear down the hole in their floor or something. I guess it’s a good thing that there is only one heating vent in their bedroom. Otherwise, there would be toys in the ventilations ducts all over their house. For some reason, the kids don[‘t mess with any of the other heating vents in the rest of the house but they think that the heating vent in their room is fair game. They just pry the cover off of the air vent in the floor of their room and then they start shoveling their blocks and their books and stuffed animals down in there. It’s so annoying to me because I know that I’m going to have to clean all of that stuff out of the air vents before their parents get home at the end of the night. It happens every single time that I babysit over there at their house. I know that someday they are going to cause some real issues with the heating and cooling system at their house. However, I think that it will be something that they will have a lot of fun doing in the meantime! One day their mother told me that she thought that there was something wrong with the heating system in their room because the temperature was always so cold there. When I told her to check the heating vents, she was shocked to see that there were three teddy bears shoved in the air vent!
