Guilt when Cinderella loses a leg ...

Cinderella lost a leg today. She had an unfortunate encounter with a huge furry monster (well, huge to her anyway..).
So as I was preparing to throw her away, I felt a little guilt. Am I teaching my children the wrong lesson by throwing Cinderella away just because she lost a leg??? Then, I got mad that I felt guilty about this. Crap, what has society done to me that I can't throw away a broken toy???
In these days of reuse, reduce, recycle and respect... it's tough to throw even a dog-slobbered broken amputee toy in the trash. No wonder my house is a wreck!
