Dash is 32 months old today

"Can you share that [insert dangerous implement name here] with me? Pleeeeze? I be very, very, very gentle." Dash is very much into make-believe that paper tubes are swords, guns, lightsabers, bats, or bow-and-arrows. When he doesn't get his way and we tell him no, he can't have that knife, hammer, or pointy corkscrew, he persistently and politely repeats his request ad infinitum, which usually results in tears, but it's important that he learns he can't always get his way.

We just bought him a booster seat for my car, just like Rosie's! And he adores it, just like he adores Rosie. She still holds her spot as number one with him. He'd rather play with her than anyone and is always trying to join in whatever she's doing. When she directs the play, he is her willing minion.

With his make-believe play, he is becoming much more independent, but still comes back to mommy & daddy when he needs help or consoling. He woke up from his nap yesterday to tell me, "Mommy, I was crying for you with my tears." Oh, he just melts my heart!

I love you, little man.


  1. "crying for you with my tears", that cutie is going melt hearts left and right.

  2. oooooh! just want to squeeze that little dude. and boy, BC will likely cry. she still remembers when she could pick him up. sort of. she's probably bigger than jools now ;-)


I appreciate the time you've spent reading my post and would love to read your comments!
