Last night when I turned down the bedspread I saw a goggly foam eye staring up at me in askance from the sheet as if to say, “How can you go to bed in good conscience knowing that you did not iron the sheets before you made up this bed?”
There are eyes everywhere. And they are judging my housekeeping.
The kids recently realized that the eyes of the animals from their Foam Animal Alphabet Puzzle can be peeled off like stickers. Hannah and Jack are nuts about stickers so they went crazy with the little foam eye stickers they pilfered from the puzzle. They put foam eye stickers on their sippy cups. They put foam eye stickers on lampshades. They put foam eye stickers on their own eyelids.
After the novelty wore off, they fed the vast majority of the foam eye stickers to Sarah. Ask me how I know.
I’m rather disconcerted when I find these little eyes stuck in the oddest places around the house. It’s like a bizarre surveillance program. Meanwhile the poor alphabet animals are relegated to a world of darkness. We can only hope that The Nursery Magic Fairy will rescue them in the near future and make them Real.
Of course then the house would be overrun with twenty-six animals ranging from an alligator to a zebra. On second thought, I’ll keep the goggly eyes.
