Workers Girls

Prior to Christmas, my mom bought Finnegan a singing Charlie Brown. 

Then it broke.

Everyday for probably two weeks, Maeve insisted that I sing "Charlie Brown is broken broken" while she and Finn fixed Charlie with their tools. Fixing Charlie Brown involved things like measuring him, putting his hat in a vice grip and pounding him with a hammer. 

Then Charlie was fixed! Or my mother-in-law bought a new one that we passed off as the fixed can never be certain.

But the broken Charlie resurfaced and still needed fixed. 

Unfortunately in a moment of stupidity, Maeve placed both Charlies next to the bathroom sink that Finn had completely filled with water. The Charlies took a bath and are now undesirable because the working one made creepy noises while shorting out.
