We Lost The Nursery's Mascot

We have been the latest custodians of the nursery's shiny new cuddly toy.

Horatio The Hedgehog gets to spend time with each of the nursery's attendees, and recounting his experiences, and tales with photographic proof, falls into the remit of parenting.

We were going great guns, pictures were taken of the spiky fellow's experience, and I had over produced a page for the diary he comes home with.

Then this happened.

They should have provided facilities for a video diary.

Perfectly Happy Mum said...

That's so funny! what a great little guy you have :))

andy said...

at first i was thinking omg you have a hedgehog running amok in your house.

totally didn't get that he was a teddy until your son took a look to his left.

biggest laugh all day.



Jo Beaufoix said...

Hee hee, I love that look of realisation on his face. And his laugh is wicked. So so adorable. :D

Maternal Tales said...

That is just too cute. I was thinking all the way through - hold on - isn't that the hedgehog right there next to Max - I wanted to call out and tell him! So funny when he realised. We too, had 'Travelling Ted' to look after. And although we didn't actually lose Ted, we did lose his blue coat. It was found a week later under the sofa! I was extremely shame-faced at school!

Karen said...

That was so funny! His laugh is so adorable.

Captain Dumbass said...

That is a fantastic laugh. And you sound frighteningly like my doctor.

English Mum said...

Doh! Happens all the time round here. Poor Half-Nelson.

Blogging Mama Andrea said...

The losing starts young. Very cute. I thought he was the little stuffed guy right next to your son but I thought nah, he'd know it was right there! Guess not.

Potty Mummy said...

What a great way to start the day. Thanks SPD!

Flugl said...

Laura said...

Oh man this is BRILLIANT!! That laughing had me giggling!!

LOVED the "have you checked?" he says to you :)

Kat said...

I just laughed until I had tears coming out of my eyes! You have a wonderful child there Ian!

SciFi Dad said...

OK, the following thoughts came to mind as the video progressed:

1. Who is Ben 10?
2. Attempt at teaching deductive logic: FAIL.
3. Were those "funny" cakes you made yesterday, because dude sounds like he might be a little wasted.

Linda said...

Good one, lovely! We lost the school teddy's glasses when he came with us to Portsmouth, never owned up!

have just tagged you in one of them there meme things if you have the time or inclination to do that xx

Apples said...

I was laughing right along. He is so cute. Can you burn it on a DVD and sick it in the log? Teacher might get a kick out of that.

LC said...

Love Max's laugh, we have parents who cannot understand the writing diary part never mind a video diary.

Milla said...

Now that was sweet. Dear little gurgling laugh. Have no idea how I arrived here but it were right lovely.

Exmoorjane said...

You arrived via me probably, Milla! Fabulous stuff, SPD.....strikes a chord. We lost two school guinea pigs and killed a hamster (well, the dog did) but thankfully we didn't video that bit....
Thanks for commenting on mine.....nowhere near as cute...
