Octopus arms, yes, that’s what they call me!
Saving objects in my poor tea
But you know mummy can’t be everywhere,
So please try and take a little care.
I’m, partly, glad that I can save the day,
You see, I know there’s a better way.
You can assess what actions safe to take
And I won’t have to watch for every mistake!

Retrieved! No actual objects were harmed in this incident and said tea was finished. Plus it’s a Sunday, so husband is home and I got a second cup. I was vigilant with the second!

  4. It’s a good thing you were vigilant with the second cup, kids aim to knock that one over even more than the first since you are obviously enjoying yourself too much! #GlobalBlogging

    • Haha, yep she won’t let me get too comfortable.

    Ha, loved this! And now I’m trying to remember if I’ve ever found random things in my tea, and I don’t think I have. My son preferred to put things in our shoes! x #KCACOLS

    • Shoes, seems to be something I’ll have to look out for. Thanks

  13. This is definitely how I feel at times. I think shoes are the place my little ones have hid things. Many a dummy or toy have been found in my boots x Thanks for linking up #bigpinklink

  14. Very interesting. Thanks for sharing.
