I got to have my favorite 3 year old over for the day yesterday. Jen thinks I was doing her a favor by watching him for her. Truth is I had a blast being with Caleb! Bubba is a delightful boy. He was such a trooper as I dragged him all over Upper Montgomery County driving carpools, running errands, going to doctor's appointments, cross country practice, a quick visit with Elise at the office, and more. We were actually home a couple of times during the day and of course I made time to stop at the toy store.
I told him I would take him to buy a toy. He said, "Mzzs. Maze I don't need any toys. I have toys at my house." Except that he changed his mind once he saw this Robot Hand claw thing that he called "tweezers." Those are mighty big tweezers, Bub.
Lessee how these tweezers work in Elmo's mouth.
He was a bit unsure of Spiderman at first.....
but eventually decided he was an OK dude.
So when we were actually home for a bit he wanted to watch a movie. "Mzzs. Maze? Can you watch dis movie with me cuz it's kinda scawey." Sure Bubba! "I need this pillow on my lap for the scawey part when da tiger comes."
When the movie got scarier, the pillow got thicker. :)
I think one of his favorite things to do at my house is play with skateboards. (Remember I don't have a lot of little kid toys anymore.) He talked about riding skateboards the whole time we were driving all over the place. "When we get back to your house can we ride skateboards and THEN watch a movie? Maybe we can watch a movie and THEN ride skateboards."
Bubba, you can come ride skateboards at my house any time you want. Please?
