I found the missing shapes! Today I was doing laundry and when I got to the bottom of the hamper I heard the distinct sound of plastic hitting plastic…I immediately knew what it was. My sneaky little girl threw her toys in the bottom of my hamper and I covered them up with a weeks worth of laundry.
Oh well, I guess there really is no Land of Lost Toys. Just a very mischievous child, who, by the way, was ecstatic to have her toys back!
In other news, Leah got her first real “boo-boo” tonight. I was over at a friend’s house and Leah was showing off, walking laps around the kitchen, when she tripped and hit her mouth on a drawer handle. I knew by her cry that she was really hurt and leaped over to grab her up.
There was blood. Lots of blood. I managed to stay calm in order to comfort her and try to figure out where it was coming from. I let her bury her face in my shoulder, not caring one bit about my shirt. She cried pretty hard for about ten minutes and then we distracted her with toys. Another fifteen minutes and she was laughing and dancing again.
Once again, I have been more traumatized by my daughter’s pain than she was. It took until we got home to find out where she hurt. It looks like she bit her upper lip. Poor little punkin’!
