OK folks, this is the last day! Read on, then click comments and enter by midnight tonight:
Last week, we asked readers to tell us what lurked in the depths of their totes. The results were, as expected, hilarious – pumpkin seeds, snot busters, dolly socks, even a potato – and we loved the suggestion of keeping a defunct TV remote control in there to keep junior occupied on shopping trips.
So, two things: we’re shipping winner “CPA and Soccer Mom Angela” a copy of PH Hanson’s adorable “My Mommy’s Tote” board book. And we’re launching this week’s big Q. The prize? We’ve got a trio of new books, including “Cranium: Ultimate Book of Fantastic Fun and Games,” Jerry Pinkney’s “Little Red Riding Hood” and Holly Hobbie’s “Toot & Puddle: Let It Snow.” Perfect fare for a long holiday car ride to Grandma’s … who inspired this week’s contest. Much as we adore Grandma’s house, our kids always manage to get into wildly inventive trouble when we visit. So this week, we’re sharing the shame. Click “comments” (we’ll draw a winner Friday night) and tell us, what’s the worst thing your kids have done at Grandma’s? Ours plucked an avocado off Grandma’s tree and discovered that when you throw one against the side of her pretty, pretty, pale gray house, it explodes in a spectacular green smear … and when you throw a couple dozen of them … OK, now it’s your turn!
