A week or two ago we were in Walmart making a quick stop to get milk, when we saw this cute baby toy hanging from an end cap in the baby section. It immediately reminded us of Luna so we plucked it off the display strip and made a mad dash to the checkout with our milk.
We only ever buy stuffed toys for Luna anymore. We used to bring home a stuffed toy for each one of them and the boys would take theirs hold it on their mouth for a second and then drop it and look at us like, "What did you bring me that is edible?"
Luna, on the other hand, still gets excited to get a stuffed toy and plays with them the most. The boys are happy to play with one from the bin from time to time.
The little girl mermaid toy reminded us of Luna because she loves kids. I don't know why, but she just about pulls herself out of her harness if she sees a child when we are out on a walk. She sure as heck didn't get that from me. So, we thought the little girl mermaid with its little pony tails would be a fun toy for her.
Luna was very happy to get her new toy and played with it the entire night. The next day, I noticed the boys were hanging out with the mermaid. At first, they were trying to play it all cool, like, "Well, Luna just left it on the pillow and we just wanted to sit here, ya know?"
But, then I spied Henry playing with it and then just sitting there like this, which I found to be a little disrespectful. Have some manners, Hank!
This is an old shot of Benjamin & Henry as puppies. One morning they decided to curl up and sleep in their toy bin. The next morning they decided to chew their toy bin! We frequently laugh at how we were complete rookies when we got Benjamin & Henry. I mean, come on, who gets puppies a nice wicker toy basket. We were lucky that basket lasted a week.
As always, I look forward to your captions in the comments
For this week’s Caption This, we have little Luna sporting one of the gangs most liked plush toys. Her brothers actually helped her put the toy around her neck. They were playing tug and the little girl had to get in the middle of everything. As always, I look forward to reading your captions in the comments.
Benjamin took it upon himself today to do a little spring cleaning on his toy box. He started on the top shelf pulling down most of the larger plush toys, but then decided that he needed a more paws-on approach and jumped into the upper basket. He diligently worked for a few more minutes sending toys flying out of the basket before he realized that this was a much bigger job than he originally thought and that his time would be much better spent napping!
