Annie blew on that whistle off and on during our entire drive to Northern California. It’s going to mysteriously get lost while we’re here, how sad.

Yikes! I’ll cross my fingers that she won’t even notice it got … lost.

And she looks so serious about blowing it! Haha! You guys are way nicer than I am. That would have lasted about five minutes on a road trip in my car.

Isn’t it funny how so many noise making toys either “mysteriously” go missing or somehow get “broken” when no one is looking so they don’t make that horrendous…err…lovely, ear splitting sound any more?

Annie is so beautiful! I am so envious of her skin and hair.

You are more patient than I. I would have “accidentally” kicked it out of the car onto the ground at a rest stop or gas station en route. Although lately my girls have responded well when I tell them ” my ears are full” of any repeated, annoying sound or phrase. However, when one of them says it to the other, whoever is makingthe noise or chanting the phrase interprets it as “Bring it, sister” and fighitng ensues.

Interesting how that just MIGHT happen – sort like batteries seem to fall out of the most annoying toy as well. Positive thoughts still being sent your way!!!

My mom fully admits to accidentally losing many things throughout our childhood. Including the words to a song my brother made her sing one too many times.
Having been a nanny for ten years I can honestly say I hold no ill will towards her.

Aww, but she looks so cute with it!
(Nah, lose it. It’s the only way.)

It’s So Sad. NOT! I threw my 4 y/o daughter’s whistle out on Sunday, with a HUGE smile on my face. We have all tile in our home, and man does it echo. She got it at a birthday party (stop it with the whistles parents!) and would not stop blowing that thing. She knows I hate it, so she does it more to me, ar AT ME rather. I try to ignore it, but I just cant. It penetrates my brain and makes me wanna throw dishes and stuff. So right there with ya, “I dont know where it is sweetie, check your toys again. “I am *sure* its there!” HA! HA!

Cookies are good distractions. Who doesn’t love cookies.

Sneak it from her, jam a fork in it and twist it so it doesn’t whistle anymore… give it back to her and let her discover that it broke and let her throw it away. We did that with paci’s and bottles… worked like a charm!

Sounds mean (to the whistle) but very effective. Beats my mom’s way to handle taking away the paci.
She told me a crab had stolen it away, knowing how much I feared crabs (still do, actually). A month later I saw it hiding in one of the cupboards, and went “Bad mom, you lie to me!”. My mom was gobsmacked, both by me saying a sentence that long, and the fact that I understood the concept of lying when I was all of a year and a half.

LOL! Great idea!!!!
August 14th, 2012 at 4:38 pm
Yeah, you’re nicer than I am. Pretty sure I would have thrown that thing out the window of the car!
August 16th, 2012 at 7:29 pm
How did that thing get in the car to begin with??? I definitely would have “lost” it on the way to SF–say at a gas station…or out the window!
