Seth and I have our limits so for sanitation purposes, Lightning is not allowed into the bathroom. Somehow Tiger thought he was getting away with breaking the rules when he went to the toilet with Lightning the Queen in hand. He did his business and for storytelling purposes I regret to inform you that all numbers achieved in this particular toilet session, it was then, and only then that his car slipped from his fingers and Lightning the Queen sat in a watery pooppy grave.
Tiger gave a death curdling shriek. I should probably preface this by mentioning that the kids and I read a picture book about the history of toilets, clearly we are hitting the bottom of the Army library. So Tiger was just all that much more disgusted by his most beloved car sitting in filth.
I came in, assessed the situation, realized Seth was gone, and knew I had to do what any loving mother does at one point in her career. I fished the thing out.
Yes, I am the hero, where is my medal?
In other news, I have was a little crafty this week.
A few months ago I went to H&M and bought a skirt on sale. It was cute but when I tried it on it was easily two sizes too small. Why does H&M offend my vanity? I kept the skirt and it sat collecting dust.
This week I decided to take the skirt and turn it into a maxi dress for Stella.
I simply took the skirt in on the back and sewed a t-shirt on the top. It took about five minutes and is super cute. Stella loves it. Can you tell?
