On Tuesday I made a serious scientific discovery.

I found that rain causes this:
And rain causes this:
And rain causes this:
And rain causes this:
And rain causes this:
And rain causes this:

My hypothesis: Thunder storms cause interior toy migration that is both random and epic in nature.

if we could combine your toys and our toys -- we could put several large chain stores out of business.

are girl toys as miniscule and migrating as boy toys?

hmmm, that doesn't sound quite right....

Greta said...

OMG...my house looks like a Littlest Pet Shop/Star Wars Galactic Heroes/Legos orgy and tornado wreck. I will see your rain day catastrophe and raise you spring break. 5 more days!!!!!

Lisa said...

Those are some very interesting migrations--was the dinosaur eating the egg?Was the dumptruck there to clean up after blue man's fall on his motorcycle? Mommies want to know ;)

Courtney said...

Love the pictures, especially the random egg. I guess even play dinos have to eat? Have a good day.

Truly, I can NOT wait to dry out. I don't know if I've ever been as happy to see the sun as I was this morning.

cce said...

Right? Mother Nature is really pissing me off now and I'm feeling so ineffectual in my rage against the clouds and the rain and the puddles and the mud.

It's RAIN that causes that? I thought it was BOYS.

Even the puddles/river in the yard given the fact that Dylan has discovered the joys of peeing outside.

Rachel said...

I agree 100% I have found this phenomenon in my household as well. Glad to know someone else has experienced it!

I can so identify with these pictures. I have two boys but I swear sometimes it seems as if there are more hiding somewhere. I scrapbook and thought about taking pictures like this and scrap it. I think I will definately now! Love your blog!

Aaah memories. The only time I have Legos on my floor anymore is when my nephews visit. But back in the day . . .

Suzie said...

I've been known to take the kids out in thunderstorms. Its seems easier than braving the storm inside.

Sandy C. said...

LOL! Yes, your weather must have migrated here and into our home :)

JCK said...

It's a true migrating...catastrophe! At least for moms...

Now, rain doesn't stop my BOY. He would be IN the 2nd picture, stretched out, covered in ecstatic mudded bliss...

jennifer h said...

I'll just stand over here in the corner and pretend it's rainy and cold here, too.

We do have migrating toys at my house, though.

Kristen said...

Oh, I hate stuck inside when it rains. The house is just going to be trashed. No way around it!

Tootsie Farklepants said...

Can you please apply your theory to sunshine? Because I've got some of that sort of thing happening over here, but no rain. Thanks.

Valarie said...

Hee Hee, that looks like my house except substitute dinosaurs for wrestlers. We are on spring break so it is so much worse. It calmed down yesterday and today, he went to a friends house. That little boys poor Mother, I don't think she saw what was coming. :(

Beck said...

INterestingly enough, SNOW CAUSES THAT TOO!

OHmommy said...

Very interesting. :)

Love the pictures!

Rain sucks the life out of me. My house looks that way most days. What sucks the most is how many days it'll take for that to soak in....and rain for Easter for us. Why are we so lucky?

dawn224 said...

Hee hee - can we put the timer on the toys to see how long it takes for them to be put away? At least it won't have to be in the fridge for a while.... :)

Lynn said...

You and Einstein come up with very interesting theories:~)

this is so cute. and I can totally relate.

I'm so loving your little crumb catcher posts -- this and the kitchen floor... sweet little reminders of their presence.

TELL ME ABOUT IT!!! My daughter has that block puzzle with the animals in that first toy pic. She plays with it all the time. I just ordered her a princess one and a hello kitty one off ebay, lol! (Not that you care...hehe!)

Pinky said...

Yes, I hate the week-long torrential downpours. It hurts.

Angela said...

But it isn't snow. At least it isn't snow. I'd show you a picture of what snow causes, but then I might get arrested or something.
