Treasure Hunt

This afternoon, Ellie was scavenging around in my purse and found several treasures, including a tampon.

I found the top part of the cardboard applicator, the bottom part of the cardboard applicator, and the paper wrapper lying in the foyer. Only one thing missing. I crawled around on my hands and knees looking under all the furniture. What an observant child, to notice that the tampon is supposed to go hide somewhere. I'm a little afraid of what I might find when I next change her diaper.

When I was pregnant with daughter #2, daughter #1 used to put my tampons (unused, of course) in her "big girl panties" very proudly. I expected to hear her sing, "I am woman, hear me roar." At least she kept all the pieces together.

Dude, it was an unused tampon, of course. Most women don't carry around used tampons. Unless you're suggesting that unused tampons themselves are gross? Surely not.

Anyway, there was fortunately no tampon in her pull-up when I put Ellie on the potty earlier. There was, however, a Mickey Mouse sticker on her bottom. I stuck that to her arm earlier, so my best guess is that she pulled it off and threw it down, then scooted over it. She likes to scoot on her bottom. She does not like to crawl on all fours - it's too hard to see the world that way!

RHE - hilarious! (For the second time today, I barely stopped myself from typing your real name. I'm tired.)

He he he

Better hide the tampons!! Last time I was looking for a panty liner... there were none to be found. I found them, 2 months later... stuck to the back of my son's closet wall behind the clothing?!

Sneaky little buggers...

Man, it's universal--all kids are fascinated by tampons. Oh well, let her enjoy them while she can; she will come to loathe them soon enough.

karla is right - all children are fascinated with tampons. Baby H drags them around the house every chance she gets. This makes the dog happy b/c he thinks they are great chew toys.

Update: I found the tampon, thankfully still intact, in the foyer tucked underneath the stroller. This child is hilarious.

Sometime I'll blog what I found when I got home the other night. It does involve tampons and other disgusting trash alongside a very unrepentent pug.

Even my cats love tampons.
