Monday Night's Treasure

Dear Fifi,

Today mommy got you a new toy. Your very first toy. It was not Jay's. It was not Lola's. It is all yours. You shared your toy with your older siblings and you watched them play for hours with it. You are content just watching them play, you are our happy third child.

Love
Sweet Little Mama

P.S Go ahead and teeth on it. Although it is probably made in China - it hasn't been recalled yet.

P.S.S Mama made sure it was extra clean by scrubbing it down with Soft Scrub bleach. Now, no one can tell that it was found two blocks away, on the corner, set out with Monday night's trash. One man's trash is another man's treasure. Yes? Sweet Fifi, I promise that this is the first and last time I swipe trash for you.



Never in my wildest dreams would I have done this for my first born. Have you ever swiped anyone's trash to make your own treasure?

My daughters have this toy and they love it!! Especially my 14 month old, Stella. BTW, when you said "go ahead and teeth on it...it hasn't been recalled yet", I laughed out loud. Your too funny!

P.S. Wonder what happened to Jen over at "Hey, I'm Going Crazy..", her url doesn't seem to be working!

She said she no longer liked where her blog was going and felt her family was in danger; but, she would continue checking in on her favorite blogs.

I really don't know what happened - she had this posted on her blog for a morning and in the aftrenoon it was gone.

Hey, found you via Playgroupie's blog, and YES I have done that! My neighbor set out a perfectly good Playskool victorian dollhouse and I did the same, although I used liquid bleach ;)

My girls loved that house.

Sorry ohmommy, I'm back! Ohh, it's weird reading stuff about yourself, yikes! I believe you were the only one to read that last post.

Anyway, I'm back, better and pinker.

PS. The Laugh N' Learn house is THE BEST toy my girls have - and they've got thousands. Way to go for picking it up and refurbishing it!

Hey Jen - nice to see you are back. I was wondering about what happened. I missed checking in on you these last couple of days.

Your first PS made me giggle :>

OMG, that is so funny. I literally just came home after jogging and saw a perfectly fine looking bookshelf outside my apartment building near the trash cans. What did I do? Picked it up, took it in, washed it in bleach. Hey, Manhattan is an expensive place! And then I read your place. I was in shock. You think we got it from our mother?

OHmommy said...

LOL - Kash.. too funny. We really do think alike. Remember when we bought the SAME EXACT mango.com coat and realized it days after? Thinking alike is in our blood.
