On avoiding the plague


Addison loves her "dubby." So much so that trying to wash the dang thing becomes something like an episode of Mission Impossible. Sometimes we decide that it's too hard to sneak the bunny away from her, and we just let it slide. But when birds start dropping dead outside our house, it's either wash the thing or have the CDC get all "outbreak" on our heinies.

Why is it that toddlers think the greatest demonstration of affection is biting and gnawing? You already gave the poor bunny the black death; leave his stanky ears alone!

  1. My nephew will stand by the dryer forlornly until his blanket is done being dried. So cute

    1. There's no forlornly for Addison. Once she realizes that it's in there, she goes into full-on mama bear mode, as though we're trying to flush her dubby down the drain. It gets rough.

  2. Do you think there's a direct correlation between Addison preferring to hug you and the fact that you make me do all the dirty work of bunny-stealing while you give her cookies?
