Tommy Is Not a Stool

Our kids are good at charming strangers. They would make great panhandlers.

Today Peter took them to the grocery store. They both came home with free balloons.

Then Lucy's balloon floated up to the ceiling.

She jumped to reach it. Too short.

She stood on her Diva Chair to reach it. Still too short.

So she put Tommy on the Diva Chair, and then tried to stand on top of Tommy. Tommy was not pleased with her problem solving skills. Lucy was still too short. Peter had to intervene and rescue both Tommy and the balloon.

And speaking of the Diva Chair, later this evening I walked into the living room and found this:

I asked Lucy what was going on.

"The bike was tired. It's sleeping now."

Obviously. Why didn't I guess that.

When I went to take a picture of the sleeping bike, I discovered that my camera had also been tucked in for the night. Nite Nite Camera. Who needs dolls when you have expensive electronics to play with instead?!
