When we got pregnant with Mercedes,
one of the very first purchases we made was for a
TERRIBLE TODDLER TOWEL.
Towel has become Mercedes’ lovey.
He goes everywhere with her.
She sleeps with him.
He even kisses her owies for her.
Towel is our favorite!
Well one night Mercedes and Mommy were having dinner on the porch.
Mercedes LOVES to have picnics on the porch.
Towel went with us of course.
Mommy was cleaning up from dinner and couldn’t get everything in one load.
She was going to go back outside and get the rest, but the phone rang.
Bedtime came and it was time to go upstairs.
We did a serious search of the house.
We did another SERIOUS search of the house.
Then Mommy remembered we ate dinner outside.
We checked the porch.
We checked the flower garden.
We checked the rock garden on the side of the house.
Mommy cried BIG tears.
Cede cried… kinda… not much.
24 hours later. . .
Mommy tucks Mercedes into bed still…
Then while Mommy is picking up the front room
(which is frequently a FEMA disaster zone)
She reaches up on a shelf to put away some books…
and there on the shelf, tucked on top of the pile of toys…
BEST night of sleep Mommy had in a LONG time!!
In the mean time we ordered a new towel…
This is what TOWEL looks like up against a new one. . .
