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.
