Time to Stop and Smell the Roses
Today I decided it was time to rotate Avery's toys. Some have been packed away for a while, and the ones that are out now seem to have multiplied!
After I got started, I soon realized that I only needed to take the ones off the top of her 'recent' baskets. Apparently Avery tends to not dig to the bottom for a choice. So, at the bottom of the 'recent' baskets, she has discovered a whole other batch of toys.
Because of this, I only had to pull out a few packed away items for it to seem like she had new toys. Two of these items are her flowers. They are giant flowers, and she's always loved them. And since they've been gone, she's learned to smell real flowers.
Of course her 'smelling' is more of a blowing in and out of her nose, which turns into snotting onto her flower of choice. But since her giant flowers have been unveiled again, she has smelled them non-stop. Best of all, my Avery is not selfish, so not only is she enjoying it all, she's letting me smell them too...and Curtis (the dog), over and over and over.....
