As I was putting on the finishing touches to my hair and makeup, M comes to me cradling several pieces of legos, proclaiming he was taking these toys with him to the restaurant. Immediately I shot him down as I saw a flash forward of legos being launched at other diners and me having to run around trying to retrieve them. Not fun in my book.
I politely asked him to choose different toys with less pieces because I did not want to keep track of them. While I thought my reasoning was pretty sound, M, on the other hand, was not impressed and continued to argue that these were the toys he was taking. I stood firm and walked back to my room to finishing dressing.
When I emerged again, I found M stuffing my purse with legos. I tried to stop him, I did. but he's fast, and I'm too old for this. He grabbed the purse and took off screaming.
Here it is, this little 3 year old dude holding my purse hostage, carrying it around the house to keep me from taking his legos out. What's a mom to do? So, I give in. Why fight it? At least he didn't try to take his tonka truck.
The only problem is that when I picked up my purse to go to work this morning, what do you think I found? Not brain surgery people. There they were, in all of their duplo colorful glory, the legos.
I know I'm not the only who ends up with a billion unnecessary and unwanted items in my purse.
So what's in your purse?
