When Mom and Dad are Away . . .

. . . the Toby Monster will play.

That's right. I just got the update from the in-laws on Toby's week and a half with them.

First, he ate through their garden hose whilst relaxing in the backyard.

Second, mother-in-law was eating a sandwich, got up to change the channel, came back, and the sandwich was gone and Toby was smiling.

Third, mother-in-law was preparing school supplies for her preschoolers while Toby napped on the air conditioning vent. She went upstairs for a few minutes and returned to a living room littered with paper. Apparently, the minute she left the room, the Giant Head made confetti out of the spiral notebooks. She said that when she discovered him, he looked at her innocently with a spiral wire hanging out of the side of his mouth.

And last, but certainly not least, mother-in-law bought a case of cat food. IN METAL CONTAINERS. Toby ate through the shrink wrap on the case. Then he ate through the METAL CONTAINERS. Then he ate the cat food. Then he repeated this until HALF OF THE CASE WAS EATEN.

We're taking them out to dinner tomorrow.

oh my. the mental image of him with the spiral hanging out of his mouth made me LOL at work.
