Using Stanley for Evil....


The girls have figured out how to push Stanley the Snail (referenced here) around and use him to climb up and reach places they aren't supposed to. Here are some photos of the action:



Because of this little trick, they got into the bag of teeny-tiny-itsy-bitsy clear and black rubber bands I use for their hair. A bag of about 500. Not kidding. Literally 500. ALLLLL over my living room floor. They are SO easy to find....not! And OF COURSE they did this as I was getting dressed and about to leave the house---yes, getting dressed AND getting them in the car, pretty much simultaneously. I was overjoyed, as you can imagine.
Picture:


Clear AND tiny. Bad combo.



Oh, and did I mention this was the SECOND time this happened?....today???? Ahh, yes, it was. Apparently I didn't move it far enough out of reach the first time. Yay for me.

And, boy, am I glad I'm not still finding rubber bands every day........

That sounds like lots of fun finding all those hair elastics. Now, when I heard that they got spilled twice in one day, I really felt sorry for you.

Ugh. I'm so sorry! I hate it when my kids get into something over and over and over, even though I take precautions! Like getting into the flour. Grrr.

I hear you! My kids have also dropped those clear rubber bands on the floor and they are impossible to find. I usually just give up trying to pick them all up. Can I ask where you bought those, too? I haven't been able to find any since we moved here. (I guess I'm a glutton for punishment...they really are the best for little girls' hair, though :)
