in the nick of time!

This is my second year dropping toys for the Toy Society. We had so much fun doing it as a family last year.
I'd let the month slip away and almost didn't get this done in time!


Curly Girl was sick and had an appointment with her pediatrician on Saturday.
I threw this little zebra together in about 10 minutes. No time for eyes or anything but I think he was cute anyway!



We planned on leaving it in this chair but as soon as we put it down a ton of people walked in so I stuffed it in my tote.
We ended up tying it on the scale in the hallway as we left after the appointment!

We had to be quick so I didn't get a photo of it there.



Knowing another sick child would find it made her feel better.

I felt better knowing she did NOT have the flu....we are still waiting on the results from her strep test but since she is feeling better today, I don't think she has it.

Glad to hear Curly Girl is feeling better. I am absolutely AMAZED by this post, not only by your talent (how fabulous is that zebra) but also by your generosity. I have never heard of the Toy Society but think it is an absolutely wonderful idea!! Your post really made me feel warm inside :o)

The zebra turned out cute! It's nice that a sick kid will find it.

Glad Curly Girl is feeling a bit better.

We have snow here, enough that the city is shut down for another day or two and of course, Kyle wakes up with a cough. Since his walking phneumia(sp) we have to be very careful and NOTHING is open to even get a script if we need it!!

Glad she's feeling better, do you know the results yet? Cute little zebra! Probably a good thing he has no eyes, in case the child who found him was quite young.
Lots of kitty cuddles for Curly Girl is the cure I think! Warm cups of tea with lemon and honey, a nice warm bed in front of the tv and lots of kisses from Mum!

What a wonderful idea, to leave a toy for a sick child. I love random acts of kindness like that.
