Sara loves to collect things - and when I say "things" I pretty much mean anything she finds. At school, when she plays outside in the playground she fills her pockets with "things" for her collection. Every few days I have to emptying her jacket pockets and disposing of the contents. I have found everything from bottle caps, grass, leaves, feathers, rocks (many many rocks), food wrappers, twigs, cigarette butts (gross), just to name a few.
The other day, as I was once again emptying her pockets, I came across something very interesting - a small baggy of marijuana. That's right, marijuana, about a gram worth. It took me a few moments to realize that I was actually seeing what I was seeing. And yes indeed it was! Sara saw me examining the bag and I asked her where she found it. She replied "At the playground, it is for my collection."
Like most things in her collection, we will be disposing of this item asap. And of course, we will be informing the school of her finding.
