Remember last week Mom insisted on cleaning out my toybox (well….toy wagon to be precise!)??? We made it through that painful process without too much agony but what she DIDN’T know is that I hid some of my raggedy old favorites in special hiding places so they’d escape THE BIG CLEAR OUT. This little yellow fuzzy ball on the end of an elastic string was one of the things she didn’t know I’d hidden – that is until this morning! She and Daddy were reading the Sunday paper and I dragged this baby out from one of my secret hidey holes and carried it to the middle of the living room rug. Boy was SHE surprised…..I like to keep my parents on their toes. Just when they think THEY have the upper hand around here, I remind them who’s really in charge!
So why did I save this particular toy during the clear out? Well, it’s lightweight so easy to drag around the house and up and down the stairs…..and it’s small and really easy to hide; it’s also one of my oldest toys – maybe ten years old! I guess that makes it an antique in MY world.
I’ve got a few other surprises for Mom hidden around the house. She thinks she threw away my lucky rabbits foot, my red ribbon, and my old stuffed bird with only one feather left….HAHA…..when she wasn’t looking closely I snatched those from the throwaway pile too!
Who’s in charge around here? I think we all know the answer to that!
