Quote from the phone files: A little while later, I was on the phone with my mom, while Boy #1 was tearing off his TP mummywraps. He then decided he wanted some TP on his leg to make a cast. I said, "No, I will not tape that toilet paper on you!" Of course, mom laughed at this bizarre statement. I'm sure there will be many more quotes for the phone files to come like this one . And, for the record, his dad taped his leg and he then enjoyed pretending it was a cast. One more part of a full day at our house!
More recently last year, reprising his role...
Mummy waits in his cardboard sarcophagus to come back to life.
What started this ancient Egyptian mummy game?
It's a little like "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie"...
If you pick a sticker story book and let the kids put the stickers on the pages...
they'll pick stickers for the ancient Egyptian pages.
If you talk about ancient Egypt,
they'll want to talk about mummies.
If you talk with them about mummies,
they'll remember that ONE time you let them
get all wrapped up in toilet paper and run around.
And they'll want to do it again!
If you let them wrap themselves up in gauze fabric
this time instead of toilet paper (phew!),
they'll want a box to lie in for a tomb.
If they lie in the box, all wrapped up in mummy garb,
they'll want you to hide so they can burst out of the box
and chase you!
If they chase you,
they will catch you...
and it will be fun!
