Two mysteries to be solved

Today there are two things playing on my mind.

The first one is this:

SAM_2259Why does my toddler keep pulling this particular book out of the bookshelf and telling me to read it? What’s wrong with The Gruffalo?


And the second one is this:

SAM_2260Am I the only one whose skinny jeans come out of the washer-dryer looking like this? And how did I ever fit into them? Will I ever fit into them again?

I guess that was technically four mysteries, sorry about that. But they all need to be solved, so please help me.

Thanks in advance.
