So, my little guy can be entertained for at least 10 minutes (which is forever in 3-year old time) if I give him a sheet of stickers to peel off and place on paper. Lately he has been using these hole-punch reinforcement stickers. On Wednesday the kids decided that putting them on their eyes turned them into zombies and voila! a new game was born.
We saw Santa at Bass Pro Shop. Which led to the funniest moment of the week:
The camping area of Bass Pro had a big camping display. There was a whole camping scene set up: tent complete with kid-sized mannequins, fake greenery, wood chips on the ground, taxidermied animals placed around the scene and the like. My little girl asked why the animals looked so real and I tried to explain the basics of taxidermy. Which went something like this: ‘well, they were real, but someone killed them. And then they took out the blood and organs and stuffed them with something else and now they are just decorations.’ (I have a way with words, no?). My little guy took in the explanation, turned to me with huge eyes and a horrified expression and asked “were those people real once too?”
Buddy boy got a new shirt, simply because I wanted my child in a shirt with a Delorean.
Trip to the libraries are good for the soul.
