Things That Annoy Me Thursday: Exploding Toys

It was a toy shark.

Natalie has always loved sharks for some reason. If we go to a store and she sees a toy shark she’s like, “I’d sure love to have that shark!”

Anyway, the toy shark that she had died.

Exploded.





There’s its inards. Only it’s not just in that tiny space. No. It’s all over my house. The stairs. The carpeted floors. The bare floors. The cat box. ???

How did the shark die? Well, Natalie can be rough with her toys. If you squeeze such toys hard enough, they break apart and....tiny, white dots. Everywhere.

So right now I am annoyed with toys that plump up with tiny, white dots because I have a feeling that dots are going to linger even after I’ve vacuumed.


(And after I wrote this, I found a dot in my purse. Ugh!)

That's like when you leave aa tissue in your pocket when you do laundry (no? Just me?). So irritating, and lasts for ages!

Stopping by from SITS.

My pet peeve is lip balm in the pocket, that I find AFTER all the clothes have oily spots on them when I take them out of the dryer.

I was scared for a minute. Exploding+toy=scary!

Now I understand.
Ya. A mess.
Hopefully the butter will be spared.
Think about that one for just a second.
A dot in the butter that you chew on.....you just went and checked the butter didn't you?

Hope you get that all cleaned up!

Oh, I HATE that kind of toy. That stuff is worse than glitter. (And I laughed so hard at your finding a dot in your purse that I woke my dog up)

I hate that! We had Christmas crackers that had confetti in them. It got everywhere. I even found some in my bra that night. LOL. I'm still finding pieces.
