A bill to be paid, a roll of tape, marbles, the dog’s food dish, a stick of lip balm, a brick of cheese—pretty much anything small enough to be stowed in a little girl’s pink backpack may go missing around here at any time.
Seems we have a backpack pack rat.
My girl enjoys squirreling away all kinds of things in her backpack and collecting items as she goes about her day.
At bedtime we enjoy a hilarious daily round of, “What’s In Avery’s Backpack?”
The game is simple—unload the bag and laugh uproariously at the contents of the day. Here’s what she collected yesterday:
sharp scissors (excellent parental supervision)
small jewelery box
the home phone
one pencil, one brown
one candy cane
one Franklin window decal
brother’s friend’s phone number on a sticky not
tube of 18 hour Cracked Heel
two pairs of 3D glasses
stuffed dog toy
assorted loose change and three marbles
foil “Happy Birthday” sign
one deflated whoopie cushion
