“mommy, close your eyes!”

(what every mother wants to hear their kid say, right?)

“i want you to see something!  close your eyes and give me your hand, ok?”

(well, it’s usually better when they want you to see what they did…)

“don’t worry, i will lead you and i won’t let you run into the wall.”

(ok,  i’m sold…  so i close my eyes…)

once her handiwork was duly appreciated and discussed, jasper moved on to putting each toy into their own little “tent”…

needless to say, clean up was fun that evening…

but it was worth it – do you see the little piglet poking her nose out of the toot & puddle book?  yep, totally worth it.
