Fun Mail and What Was She Thinking?

Fun mail is fun! I received a swap package in the mail on Monday as part of a the "Chittery-Chattery-Swappity-Swappers: Partner Swap: Stuff that Envelope!". Each person was to stuff a 6x9 inch envelope for another person. Check out these great goodies I received from Happyteacher!

There's a great teal Erlenmeyer Flask dishcloth - I adore chemistry glassware! Dachshund goodies including a pin from DrellaJones, magnets from SillyDogMagnets.com (and they are wearing sweaters!), and a set of buttons. Candy, my weakness. Sharpie pens and post-it flag / highlighters. And the bird on the left? That opens up into a great reusable bag! Yay for happy swaps!

I am hoping to keep things low-key today - over the weekend, the Lorax was sick and goopy and now I am dealing with it. I am lucky in that the Lorax is able to entertain herself for a bit at times, but then I find things like this later on:

Not sure what she was thinking this was when she set it up in her room, those would be socks on individual tissues, bouncy balls on individual tissues and her new clock also on its own tissue. Funny thing about that clock - it can be set to light up green when it is ok to get up / come out of her room, as she has been coming in to our room at 5:30am, well, she was all excited to have a "Big Girl" thing in her room but she keeps putting it in the closet. Defeats the purpose in a way, but she has been staying in her room and when we go in to get her we all check the clock in the closet and find that it is green. So I guess it is working.

I can hear messes being made as I type this post (something was just dumped out all over the floor), here's hoping it is a quick clean up and we do more of this today instead!

That photo cracked me up because it is totally the kind of thing I used to find in my daughter's room after "quiet time"! It started when she was about 2 and I would bring puzzles and books into the bathroom to keep her occupied while I showered. I'd get out of the shower and the books would be spread all over the floor, each with a couple of puzzle pieces carefully placed on top. Must be some developmental step but I never did discover what it was!

Someone has great spatial sense to stuff that envelope so full.

I love the Lorax's arrangements. They made me laugh.
