A few months ago, I shared a funny story about Sarah hiding her favorite toys so Reagan would not play with them.
Sarah got over that pretty quickly, but now it seems we have a new "toy" issue.....
Toys that are really small and come with lots of tiny little pieces. Sarah is at the age where she is into Barbie Dolls, My Little Ponies, Polly Pockets, etc. Reagan is way too young for these toys because the minute she gets her hands on them.....
Those tiny toys go straight into her mouth.
We have resorted to putting these toys up high like on the counter top when Sarah plays with them and when she is done, we usually put all the tiny pieces in zip lock bags before we put them away.
The morning I took these photos, Sarah was still sleeping(she likes to sleep late)and had been playing with her My Little Pony house just before bed the night before. Usually everything gets put away before bed, but she asked us to leave it out so she could come straight down to play with it the next morning, so we left it out on the counter.
Reagan spied it while she was eating her breakfast and as you can see giving her a princess doll or two to play with was not cutting it.....she wanted the house complete with all the tiny pieces.
Of course I caved and let her play while her sister was still catching some z's and she was under my watchful eye.
We don't really have a designated playroom in our house..... the girls have pretty much taken over the family room. They have a "Toy Corner" with baskets and we try to keep their baskets separated, but it has been kind of tough keeping Reagan away from the toys that are not age appropriate.
For now we have been keeping a lot of these games and toys up in Sarah's room and then we bring them down and let her play with them on the counter or table.
After the big Emergency Room ordeal, the last thing I want to do is have to go back to have a barbie shoe extracted from Reagan's nose or ear.... or even worse yet..... have her choke on something.
If I haven't mentioned it.... Reagan totally keeps us on our toes. You cannot take your eyes off of her for a second. She is a mover and a shaker and will do anything and everything to keep up with her big sis.
Speaking of the stitches..... Doesn't her eye look great?
For everything that we went through getting them removed, it certainly healed nicely.
Lots of pictures to come......I am way behind in my posting and my computer is bursting at the seams. My nephews came to visit on Sunday and there were lots of photos taken with that much cuteness running around.
Hope to have another post or two up this week, but it is going to be a tad hectic around here. Tonight is the first, "Get Out of The Auto Zone" class and I am super excited. Then I get to do it all over again Thursday night with a new group of students. The class is going to last 5 weeks, so the posts might be few and far between the next month or so. I will try to post and keep up as best as I can.
Wish me luck:)
Have a great Tuesday!
