There is so much to write about since my last post (my official last day at the office, Lolo's first birthday, a new pattern for Jujube & Lolo, and the insane snow accumulation in my part of the world) and I was going to write about Lolo's birthday, but got sidetracked by this morning's episode of Sesame Street ;0)
You see, my construction obsessed toddler was completely entranced by a little segment of a father building a green dog house with his daughter. Completely. Entranced. So naturally, I put Lolo down for a nap, raided the garage for packaging materials, found my glue gun in the basement and set up our kitchen for a dog house building/painting session for two!
Well, Julian still didn't have any ideas and every name I offered just wasn't quite right for "dog". So we painted quietly for a bit and let it steep. Then suddenly, eureka!
"I know," he whispers, "we should name him, Nobody! My dog, Nobody!" LOL!!! It was all I could do to keep from rolling around the floor laughing. That boy just cracks me up! I bet mine is the only toddler on the block who's toy pup is experiencing an existential crisis!
Though I must say that I was amused but skeptical at first about Nobody's name, but after playing with him all day, I totally agree with Julian, "Nobody" is just right ;0)
Happy St-Paddy's day!
