Toys… EVERYWHERE! They have taken my house over! We don’t have the biggest house out there, so our living room is virtually the playroom for the boys. I try to contain toys, and the mess to their bedroom, but unfortunately it just never happens.
Actually we tried to go toy-free in our living room last week but it lasted about 6 hours.
So in a moment of humor combined with slight frustration, I came up with this list of toys that I nearly kill myself on while wandering to the bathroom, in the very dark hallway, in the middle of the night.
You know you have been there, too… it’s the middle of the night and you feel like you either need to get up and pee or you are going to explode. But you are so comfortable you don’t want to move. And you know just the 30 steps is a virtual war path because you have no idea what you are going to encounter. Yeah… We have all been there!
So I started to put a little list together of my most deadly and annoying after midnight toys. Now mind you, before you jump in and start viewing… I will remind you that most of these I have encountered while pretty largely pregnant with our youngest child who was born in April, making the experiences a little bit more hellish than normal.
Parents chime in! What are your most hated after midnight death trap toys you wish you would never see again?
