Toys are EVERYWHERE in my house. It is a losing battle! Here is a picture of my day:
I wake up, to find a Dora figurine under me. Oh, thats why I slept so oddly!
Step out of bed to get Ava, tripping over toys on the way to her bedroom. How did Dora get on my floor in the middle of the night? Oh well…
Get Ava out of bed to nurse her. Sit on the recliner in her room, to find a toy train stuffed in the side. How did that get there? Oh well.
I hear Sarah and Emma wake up, they find me, arms full of toys, stuffed animals, figurines, tea cups etc.
We go to get breakfast. I grab dishes out of the cabinet, only to find toy food in my plastics drawer. Guess I’d better fish that out later…
They play all morning. My living room is swathed in lines and lines of beanie babies, piles of dress up dresses and my old high heels, a coffee table covered in plastic food and play dishes. Figurines and my little ponies in a pile next to the dollhouse.
I make lunch, everybody falls asleep. So I do the dishes, to find toy dishes have been thrown in the REAL sink and vice versa. Why on earth?
I sit down on my recliner to snuggle Ava while they sleep, only to hear some toy faintly singing a digital song. Where is that? Up my rear? Oh yeah. Better get up and see what else I can fish out of here… Ooh! a watercolor paintbrush, fake nailpolish, a superman figurine, 3 broken crayons some legos, and what?! Hey those are MY earrings! How did they get there? I put them in the jewelry box just last Sunday! Should I even be asking that? No.
They wake up to inundate my kitchen table with crayons and coloring books while I am audio-assaulted by Laurie Berkner and ‘Victor Vito’ and I make supper. I turn around to realize that somewhere, somehow, a marker was stashed, and Emma has now covered herself in teal ink. Well! Bathtime will be extra fun! Everyone loves blue water!
Dinner. Someone brings a backpack full of legos to the dinner table.
Somebody insists on bringing their toy watch into the bath. I say no. Can anyone say: Meltdown?
Bedtime!! Oh how Glorious!
I lay in bed, to nurse Ava, only to find…. a rattle under my pillow cuddling up to Minnie Mouse. Hmm.
So now for the Super Bowl Sunday sledding pictures!
Well, Happy Valentines Day Folks! Spread the Love!
