it's worse when she goes to the dentist*

What do these things have in common?

a) whistle on a string
b) small kazoo
c) bouncy pink ball
d) mini-size highlighter marker
e) Star Wars toy that whistles
f) cherry bar
g) half a banana
h) ice cream

If you guessed 'Things Given to Rosey Throughout The Day', you won!

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go get my whistle-shrieking, kazoo-humming, ball-bouncing, fiercely coloring, high on ice cream daughter to go take a bath.

This could be tricky. First, because she doesn't want to, and secondly, because she's convinced that her brother will swoop in and steal everything if she puts it down for a second.

*alternative title: How many things can I hide tonight while she's asleep?

Pint sized things for a pint sized girl. Funny how pint sized things can pack such a punch!

Solution: Take everything except the highlighter into the bath!

I'm with Ovagirl. Unless its the tub you use, of course!

Ahhh yes, hiding the junk when the kiddies crash. Unfortunately, both of mine have learned how to pick through the garbage when they can't find what they are looking for!

Are you sure you want to hide them or do you secretly want to play with them too?

I pitch those sorts of things into one of the IKEA buckets/bins/black holes of small toys. They almost never come out again.

And why do I suddenly want to listen to Talking Heads? Nice new pic of Rosey and Cass. And lyric.

She needs a special treasure box for hiding things from her brother.

Luckily, she'll forget about most of it within days and you can do with it whatever you want.

Ree said...

Wait, who's giving her these things and how do I get in on that action?

Can I have the whistling star wars toy?

I think the highlighter would scare me the most. It sounds very... uh... permanent and neon.

Lucky girl! Maybe put everything into a bag that can sit by the tub?
