I love that Little Mister required boots for egg hunting. If only you knew that was the magic component on those other egg hunts! They are the cool kid accessory for all hunting adventures – next adventure, FROGS!
Do they have frogs in your neck of the woods? Maybe its too dry?
I still think a fire truck is a good idea.
Easter here was delightful! We found eggs inside due to the rain and cold, enjoyed church, and drove to see family where there were more eggs to find. It was a lot of fun – Munchkin found all her eggs, dutifully passing by the ones hidden obviously for Little Man. And then Little Man stole her eggs and she was obliged to “find” his in retaliation.
And then I dropped my phone in the toilet.
Though certainly far from perfect, I’m the most responsible person in the house for maintaining important items. I’m not “neat as a pin” (I like piles), but I’ve a pretty good handle on where things are. I don’t typically lose things, break things, etc. and in fact am asked where other people’s things are when they can’t find them. My track record is pretty good.
Not so much anymore.
I’m not even sure how it happened, really. It was in my hand. I blinked. It was in the toilet. Luckily, a clean one. I grabbed it immediately and we set to work drying it out. Except we couldn’t find the rice (we were not in our own home) so we had to make do with Easter grass.
Which isn’t the best for drying phones.
Well, to cut to the chase, the phone was fine except the sound didn’t work. It kept assuming it had headphones stuck in it, so you couldn’t hear the videos we’ve recorded or my music or the ever important Apple trailers or the brushing teeth timer (aka the Disney app for timing your kids’ brushing. Its magical. Like rain boots.)
It also wouldn’t notify me if someone was texting. So….it had to be on vibrate. Which means I had a serious case of “phantom ringing” for awhile there. You know, you feel a little vibration in your pocket and you dutifully take out your phone to respond, only to see that you have no messages. And sometimes you feel the vibration in a pocket that has no phone in it?
Yeah. I’ve officially gone crazy.
But we did have a Tuesday miracle. The sound started working last night. We celebrated with ice cream!
And then the brushing teeth timer was back in action!
