Tasty, tasty Ikea.


Cute kid right? Looks like an angel. Well, I’m kind of biased. ūüôā

Anyway, one afternoon I heard her wake up from her nap. I usually let her lay in her crib for a few minutes before going in to get her. I listened to her talk and play with her toys. Then, it got eerily quiet. I went in to check on her and found she had ripped a hole in the paper lampshade next to her crib. No … wait … she had EATEN a hole in the paper lampshade next to her crib. Ikea must make a tasty lampshade.

    Someday I’ll send in a photo of the child-sized tooth marks on my (not inexpensive) coffee table.¬†

    Hopefully it was rice paper or something semi-edible.

    I don’t have a picture, but my son nearly ruined me at Ikea. ¬†He was three and we were on vacation and visited the Ikea in Renton, WA. ¬†As I was using the self check out he was¬†insistent¬†on holding my debit card while I checked out. ¬†I finished and was ready to pay. ¬†Well versed in what happens at the check out station he begged and begged to swipe the card – I had previously let him insert the card into walk-up ATMs, so ¬†I caved and told him that he could. Before I could stop him or guide his hand to do it correctly he slid the card into a very small opening above the area that held the card reader. ¬†I instantly¬†panicked!!! I was hundreds of miles away from home and my son just dropped my debit card into a huge self check out machine!!!!. ¬†I got the manager over and after about 10 minutes he was able to get the machine apart and get my card out. ¬†Needless to say, I was very¬†grateful¬†and have never let him slide my card again. ¬†Oh yeah, five minutes later, he dropped an entire ice cream cone on the ground at their cafe by the front door ūüôā

    I have the exact same lamps. ¬†In my basement. ¬†Hidden from my toddler boys. ¬†Love the lamps and couldn’t bear to see “Chaos” and “Mayhem” eat them. ¬†Sorry for your loss.

    My daughter has that same dress.  Of all the clothes I bought her and subsequently returned, I absolutely had to keep that dress.  Yours is a cutie pie.
