Grey: believes that anything can become a joke with a combination of three elements: “knock knock”, chicken, and Barack Obama
Thane: Somehow learned how to build with blocks and spent half an hour last night amazing me with his Mega-block-abilities
Grey: has finally found a lovey. It’s a $4 white rabbit named “Robby” that was in his Easter basket. Robby did not do well with being washed. Grey will tell you about how Robby’s a baby, but now he’s old (with his bedraggled fur). Why do children not fall in love with their high quality stuffed animals?
Thane: likes to eat corn. One kernel at a time. After carefully inspecting each kernel to verify that yes, this is a piece of corn. His fastidiousness in this regard would be more understandable if he didn’t consider grass an aperitif and leaves a delightful dinner.
Grey: has decided his favorite food in the WHOLE WIDE WORLD OMG is the spaghetti & meatballs I made for dinner on Sunday. Canned sauce (with onions & green peppers added) and IKEA meatballs. But hey, it’s nutritionally slightly superior to Mac & Cheese, so no whining.
Thane: is too busy playing to play with meeeeee! I am sad about this and want to bop noses to make him laugh.
Grey: Learned some good skills on a playdate last night, about asking for what you want, compromising, and talking people into sharing instead of sulking.
Mommy: wishes she were hanging out with her guys right now.
One thought on “Dribs and Drabs”
Why do children not fall in love with their high quality stuffed animals?
I don’t know, but it’s probably the same reason that cats would rather play with trash than a purchased toy.
