the wheels on the truck go round & round

Dear Oliver,

Please stop shoving toys under the sofa until you are coordinated enough to retrieve them yourself.

I’m sorry all your trucks ended up under the sofa. I watched you rolling them out of reach when you thought I wasn’t watching. You were gleefully giggling until you noticed me standing in the hallway.

I am three feet taller than you, however, that does not mean it is any easier for me to get the trucks out from under the sofa. Laying on my stomach whacking at trucks with an old wrapping paper tube while you wail isn’t how I had intended to spend a large portion of my afternoon.

In the future, if you’d like to keep your toys easily accessible, don’t put them in places you can’t reach on your own.

Much love,

Your Mother
