Tip of the day; Part I

Two year olds don't need maracas.

You should avoid equipping them with maracas at all cost (especially when you have a splitting headache).

Two year olds are loud.

Maracas make them louder.

Yeah... Two year olds definitely don't need maracas.

PREACH IT! (Ditto 3 year olds.) (Ditto a drum that hangs around your neck.)

I would like to say that I'm not responsible for said maracas...but I could very possibly be. If so, they're the gift that keeps on giving! :)

Heidi said...

Yes Laurel. You're the giver of the maracas. But wait! There's more!

The maracas came inside a DRUM (and yes, it's a drum that hangs around the neck).

A drum filled with all kinds of insturments of torture:

1. Kazoo
2. Recorder (little flute like thing)
3. Maracas
4. Drum sticks (of course)
6. Castanets
7. And last but certainly not least, a freakin' TAMBORINE.

You gave it to Hope for her first birthday... You apologized before she even opened it.

Needless to say, I didn't send you a thank you note.

They forgot to add Tylenol to that wonderful drum of goodies? Brandi PS. Our maracas are broken, tee hee

I've never had a spitting headache before, Heidi. I go the impression that you were against disgusting bodily fluid secretions. Am I allowed to say secretions on here? Now Aaron just got back from Jr. High winter camp and I have a splitting headache after he regaled me for hours on how many different ways they tried to make each other puke.........Oh well, if it's all the same to you!

Heidi said...

Secretions? Yeah, I can live with that.

And I have corrected the type-o. Holy cow! How did I miss that one? :)
