The alligator

22 Feb

Yesterday, Brad and Lindsey (Braden’s parents) had to go to a rheumy appt. for Brad, therefore resulting in a Braden day on Tuesday!  I had so much fun with him.  We played with Tonka trunks, watched Sesame Street, he chased me around the basement for a good 10 minutes & then later on he decided to set up a jungle in front of the tv.  I’ve added another “you used to do this” to my list, that I am determined to tell him when he’s older.  As he was carefully extracting all of the animals from the basket, he found an alligator toy.  Background story behind the alligator- a few weeks ago Jackie and I showed Braden how to “feed” the animals by placing small cereals into the alligator’s mouth, which resulted in the cereal piece falling into the alligator’s hollow stomach.  In order to get it out, we were smacking the alligator against the ground and thought it would be funny to add spitting sound effects.  Well, yesterday, when Braden found that alligator, he began shaking the alligator… against my head.  I guess it’s partially my fault, but needless to say, the alligator in return needed to be hidden.  Win some, lose some.

    You mentioned that you were trying to keep track of things to remind him of what he “used to do.” I have an idea for you: Go to a craft store or dollar store and get one of those small journals or photo albums. I got an 8×8 one for each of my boys. I filled it with pretty colored paper instead of photos and every time one of them says or does something hilarious or memorable, I write it down. I plan to give them these books for their high school graduation or wedding or birth of their first children or some other momentous occasion. I think it is a nice keepsake. You can add photos, too.

      Yes, good idea indeed. If anything, he’ll get a good laugh out of the memories. Thanks for sharing 🙂
