She put me in the kids meal bag after she ate the burrito.
Either she loves me as much as she loves burritos or she's planning to eat me. Let's hope she's not hungry for dessert.

It's probably going to be rather painful... but we're helping Miss C. make some wonderful summer memories so it'll be well worth it.
What could be sweeter than homemade lemonade on a hot day?

You wouldn't know it just by looking at me, but I've got all kinds of hidden skills.
I've been a soap bottle, a tea time juice dispenser and even a bottle of medicine for sick bears.
I like to think of myself as the Swiss Army Knife of toys, the ultimate toddler multi-tool.

Well, I'm back in the hot seat. I'm really not sure what I did to deserve this. It's over 100 degrees outside, the air conditioning is broken, and here I sit on the hot grill in a jacket and jumpsuit.

It seems like just yesterday when Miss C.'s mama was a little girl. I used to hold the bobby pins her own mama would use to pin up her braids in elaborate designs before school each day.
Years later, here I am in Miss C.'s room. I'm dented and worn, and the bobby pins have been replaced with colorful pony elastics and bright little clips. But each morning holds the same, love-filled routine with Miss C.'s mama taking the time to brush and braid her hair just like her mama did all those years ago.

... when you hear the chimes ring like this, "Ding!" Let's begin now.
Man, I love saying that.
I'd been collecting dust in that Radio Shack for who knows how long when Miss C. and her family came in the other day. It seems the kiddie tape player they found at Goodwill broke after only a few days use – hey, they just don't build 'em like they used to! Sooooo... they needed a new one for the read along books and tapes that Miss C. received for her birthday and there I was!
No boring desk job for me. I'm reading stories, singing songs and kickin' it old school with my best bud, Miss C.

You did it! You did it, Miss C.! You finally made it to the second rung!
I remember when you were just starting to walk, and you'd hold onto me for support while your mama looked on with pride in her eyes. Now look at you, climbing up like a big girl.
Awww, now I'm all misty-eyed. I guess I'm just a sentimental old park.

... the birthday cake, the birthday caaaaaake. Put another candle on the birthday cake, you're another year older today.
Happy birthday to you, you're another older today!

Dude, I told you not to do it. When it comes to stunt driving, you're still green.
Me? I'm a professional. I've nailed this stunt a thousand times. Step aside and I'll show how a real stuntman operates.

Miss C. was pushing me around the living room today, pretending to vacuum. She spotted some crumbs on the coffee table and couldn't resist using me to clean off the tabletop as well.
That was really fun. Well, until she left me stranded up here after running off to eat a fruit pop. It could be hours before anyone moves me.

I am not a toy. I am a hospital-issue nasal aspirator. I resent the slobbering, hitting and general rough treatment I've been subjected to these past few weeks. And I demand an apology.
Is anyone listening?

Miss C. set out tea for two... only instead of an ordinary tea party setup she put out an overturned teapot, a bunch of extra teacups and a spoon for eating milk out of the carton.
Oh yeah, and me. I may just be a frosted tea cookie, but I think she's cornered the market on Mad Tea Parties. The March Hare would be proud.
