Day 13: Alphabet Trainwreck

These little wooden traincars were purchased by Byron's grandmother, who had to send them back for a replacement set because, in in the original set, apparently the "L" was for "Lead."

OH NO! We have those alphabet-letter-train-things, that we got as a gift five years ago. Hmmm...they might have to disappear.

Ha!

My eldest boy won't let me throw out his wooden train set because he wants to keep it for his kids!

Just hope it hasn't got lead in it.

Oh! I have my eyes on one of these for bubba. I'm envious of your clean rug...that Roomba...

Looked back on your recent posts that I have missed out on. The haircut rings close to home. We had a mare of a time for a long time with number 2 child and haircuts. In the end mummy had to do it, armed with lollipops, the wiggles, bubbles and quick snips inbetween!!!

I hope there were no fatalities.

These trains look much too charming to be toxic...not cool.

Are those by Melissa and Doug? We have a similar one (but not with alphabet letters) and I'm wondering if I need to get rid of it now . . .

Ack! Dontcha just hate that? And for such a pretty wooden toy too. All the recalls are so glittery for the magpies.... And I too am marveling at the pristine state of that rug.

An editorial note:

That carpet belongs to Byron's grandparents, and his grandmother is arguably the cleanest woman on the planet. She vacuums everyday. Every. Day.

If these were MY cream-colored carpets, this photo would look like a crime scene.

What was a carpet again? :-D
I'd take even a white one, I think!!
On those days when I feel like "a trainwreck waiting to happen", I hope I'm as cute as that one!!
(and I don't need no stinkin L's!!)
