i have an idea

Filed under: carmen, moseley — Jana @ 6:00 am

At preschool, Carmen got one of those little guys with the sticky hands and feet that you throw against the wall and they stick like a gecko.

She was playing with it and threw it up against the ceiling.  Of course, it stuck, and was not coming down any time soon.  The conversation that followed went something like this:

Carmen: “Mom, can you get that down?”

Me: “No, I’m not tall enough to reach it.”

Carmen: “What are we going to do?”

Me: “Well, we’ll have to find something long enough to get it down with.”

Carmen: “Wait, I have an idea… We’ll get a seesaw and put it under there.  Then I’ll get on one side and we’ll throw Moseley on the other, and I can go up there and get it.”

Ha!  At least I know little brothers are good for something in a big sister’s eyes.

p.s. we did get it down, I just had to precariously balance on a bar stool to get it, and the day was saved… without the use of baby projectiles. :)

  3. “Sure! We’ll just throw Mose on the other side! Why not?!” :)

    It was a sound idea, with the added bonus of a new seesaw. Girl is a genius.
