The other day I had the misfortune of being mistaken for the type of dog that wears cheap accessories. Yes, I have appeared in a luxurious Crown and cape, which "could" be mistaken for children's dress-up items, but rest assured, those items came from a "high-end" catalog -- not some cheap Wal-Mart or Target discount bin, but a fine quality "high-end" toy catalog.
The other day, Wee Lass was playing with some cheap interlocking bead type things that Mom had secured from the discount aisle end-cap of Toys R Us. Unbeknownst to Wee Lass, Mom only bought said items as a way to motivate the acquisition of "fine motor skills," which Wee Lass needs to hone.
Wee Lass, with some consternation, was able to construct the interlocking plastic parts into a long length, which provided Wee Lass with satisfaction of accomplishment, and Mom with satisfaction that Wee Lass was using her small finger muscles.
Then Wee Lass decided that the item she had constructed made a fine LEASH.
I do NOT wear cheap plastic leashes procured from the discount aisle end-cap of Toys R Us. I was shocked. I was sitting in the chair, in utter dismay at the low level that my life had brought me to, when Middle Lad discovered my misfortune. He "mistook" my lack of jumping up and removing myself from the situation as me just being pathetic, when in actuality, it was the fact that I was in such a state of despair and depression over my cheap plastic adornment, that I was immobilized.
Wee Lass was lucky. If she had attempted to adorn Pennie in cheap plastic, Pennie would no doubt have bitten her.

I say let the kid run around with scissors. Aren't scissors used with fine motor skills?
Or give her crayons. MAKE her color inside the lines!
In the future just steal said cheap adornments and chew them beyond recognition. Theivery is usually the best option.
Atleast she didn't turn them into a collar!
