Its A Jungle

Today I made a decision to spend some time with my girls.
That meant my time on here was
very limited.
The amount of time I spend on here is
ridiculous. It's terrible.

Both of them have not been feeling very well.
It all started Friday night after they went
to bed.
That is when the coughing began.

As our day had begun it dawned on me that I had told my
oldest that we would need to replace batteries in
some toys.
What was I thinking!
With dead batteries it was a bit more

It began with the Lion. When he rolls he makes a noise.
Well, I found that changing the batteries did not solve that.

Next was Tiger.
I told her we needed to fix his belly.
Check that off the list.

My trustworthy assistant hard at work!

Oh her.
She has been so quite.

I do not recall seeing instructions for
open and close on the real ones.
If there are then I am missing something.

I got her back on the road.
It did not take long for me to want to
pop out a battery or two from her.
I quickly switched her to
'try' mode.
That setting she at least took a break from crying.

While I was crossing stuff off my to do list I had a
spot on the carpet.
I had contemplated cutting the spot off.
Thought that it would probably be best to
try to get it off/out with a little effort
first before doing something drastic.

It had a cherry smell to it. Candy? Cough drop?
It was coming out.
Surely I wasn't going to suck on it
until it dissolved. UCK!

Next best thing was a wet paper towel with
hot/warm water.
For back up I used a hair dryer.
I got most of it out until my youngest
became curious as to what
I was doing.

In between all the fussing, meals and checking off a few
minor things we got to play a little bit and read.

Project 52: Glimpse Into Motherhood


  1. Glad you got to spend some time with her. Hope she is feeling better.

  2. One thing that bothers me is these toys that make so much noise! It's okay when my kids are playing together but when the youngest is sleeping and I hear Riley turn something on, it's like ahhhhh! NO!!!!

    Hope they are feeling better!

  3. You're a good mom to replace batteries. Once ours die I just say the toy lost its voice. ha!
