creative toy storage

Tonight I happily loaded a fresh ink cartridge into our printer and gladly typed up the new nursery list, then with no problem printed both lists twice--because I realized a couple of mistakes after each printing. The first four pages printed with no problem. But when I had my final edited copy (the one I should have printed in the first place), each time we loaded the paper in and the printer started up, it made that awful grinding noise and wound the paper up inside itself. We tried different thickness of paper, different ways of loading the paper, tricking the printer.....until finally we decided to do what the Word prompt said and take out the tray in the back of the printer. I joked that perhaps Savvy had finally managed to get a toy into the printer without my noticing (and accordingly swift removal of said hypothetical toy).

Well, after only about five seconds, Phill chuckled, tipped the printer, and what fell out, do you suppose?

A Lego-guy helmet. Apparently Savvy has no time for Lego-toy safety or printer efficiency.

*Printer is not broken, just grateful and running well.

Awesome. I wish that was why OUR printer acted so funny...

I'm still going to comment on your other post - I think you're right that it was from Mommy Mantras, but I'll look it up and let you know.

That is funny. It is amazing where you find toys of kids in the weirdest places. Glad that your printer is working
