Down With the Kid Trap

We have lived in our home for nearly fourteen years. For fourteen years, I have been planning on getting rid of the ugly, outdated light fixture in the front entryway. How ugly was it?

...Ugly enough that Ms. D and Mr. I thought it was A Kid Trap when they first saw it.

Here it is, lying on its side.

The light fixture was a trigger of bad feelings in the kids when they first came to our home, and for years later. It reminded them of the child catcher in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. And even now, after ten years, they still react to it. We should have replaced it long ago. It is more than just ugly. It is bad.

But as of today, it is no more!
