Blair and I have been having a big time since I’ve been home on break. We have played and played! Blair has some particular things that she routinely does with each of us who are with her the most – she pulls out her pink chair with grandmom, she expects Brad to run her all over the house or let her play in the utensil drawer (why that is fun is a mystery) while sitting in his lap in a chair she dragged from the kitchen table, Mama ‘Cole’s house means a KitKat, she goes from one end of Gigi’s house to the other pulling out who knows what, and the thing she likes to do with me is go outside. That is wonderful until she wakes up at 7am wanting to swing when it’s 22 degrees outside!
One day, I raked up some pecan leaves for her to play in. I threw her in them, and she had a ball. She wanted me to do it over and over. But each time she crawled her way out of the pile, she said, “Mama, rake!” The pile just can’t be untidy before she jumps back in it!
The leaf pile has provided fun on multiple days – for Blair, mommy, and daddy! Here are some of the highlights!
Bringing me the rake. (Not because I asked but because she is determined for me to rake!) Same thing, different day! A pile as big as she is! Making her way out! Daddy jumps in. He’s so funny! Telling somebody to do something. (Probably telling Brad to jump in again because she knows he’ll do it!) So much fun!
