The girls have a Rainbow play set in the back yard where they spend a lot of time in creative play. Although most of their play involves princesses or kittens, there are times when they play Excavation Exploration. In other words, they just "dig in the dirt." The girl on the upper level lowers a plastic bucket by rope down to the one on the bottom level who fills it up with dirt and sends it back up. Last Friday there was a serious equipment malfunction…the rope slipped and DD dropped the bucket! Unfortunately, the bucket landed on Doodlebug’s little finger and here’s the result 3 DAYS LATER! Poor girl. After a few minutes of crying and a good nap, she never complained again. She even played "blast-ball" (miniature t-ball) the next day.
