How did that get there?

Every night part of our clean up routine is to put away clothes in our laundry baskets. Each girl has a hamper in her room that they can put their clothes in. They are pretty good. In fact, they are too good.

A few weeks ago I was doing laundry and heard a weird clanking sound as I was moving the clothes to the dryer. Two Little People had mysteriously made their way into my laundry.

The next load I discovered a small little squishy ball. Thankfully I didn't dry that one or it would have been a disaster.
(I know you are all wondering how I miss these objects before I put them into the wash. I have no idea. Maybe I'm sorting too fast, who knows.)

Then today, I discovered this:
(that's Ming Ming from Wonder Pets and a few books)

I'm fairly certain I know who the tiny culprit is. She loves to put her laundry away and never puts up a stink when asked. Now I know why she spends so much time putting her dirty clothes away.

I laughed out loud when I read this because JUST TODAY I pulled out some laundrey from the dryer and found a wooden spoon! Hmmmm, now that I think about it, someone was hiding the spanking stick....
