I Think We’ll Call Him Shaggy

I was out on the screened-in porch earlier tonight with the kids enjoying the lovely weather we are having lately and letting the kids play a bit before bedtime.

Tim was laid up today with some sort of stomach thing all day and barely made it out of our bedroom.  So, outside time was GOOD.  For all of us.

Anyway, not .35 minutes into our porch time the two littles started fighting over (pushing, pinching, you know the drill) the plastic fish ride-on toy when thankfully, I looked to my right and saw it.

THE horse.

The one I bought MANY years ago at some “antique/second-hand” place.  The same one that my husband has had to move every time we’ve well, moved, always moaning and groaning about it and wanting to get rid of it each time we were loading stuff up.  Fortunately I always said No!

Frankly, it is kinda ugly.  I mean it’s covered in shag carpet for goodness sakes.

But, after clearing off the cobwebs some little person I know found it QUITE exciting and even cried when I took her off of her “shaggy” steed, exclaiming, “I sit, I sit!!”

I told him that horse would be put to good use some day.

Geez. Men and their need to get rid of stuff.  Good thing he has me to set him straight.

P.S. I’m sharing my awesome with Momma Made It Look Easy and you can too!
