I quickly came to my senses and realized that 4 year old's do not have the patience to cut and assemble 40+ pieces of a race car. We cut the initial layer of DJ from the movie "Cars" and then he quickly wanted to move on to the next car. We one layer for Boost. Now he wanted "SnotRod". In an effort to provide equal time to his sister, we switched from "Cars" to Tinkerbell. We picked an really cute Tink and cut her out in no time. All my little princess was worried about was that I didn't rip her Tink and that she had to have "sprinkles". She carried her Tink to the dinner table and then in the after dinner confusion, she left her on the table.
After the M&M's were safely tucked in the car and headed home, I realized that Tink was still on the table. No problem, I would just save it for her next visit, right? Wrong! Coal apparently thought Tinkerbell looked fun to play with so he snuck her off the table and proceeded to chew up all of Tink except for the tip of her wings that I managed to snatch away from him before he disappeared under the dining room table.
Hopefully, the M&M's have a short memory and won't remember that Tink was left behind - or I guess I could just cut a new one. No one would be the wiser!
