So Very Much Like Daddy

This morning I was a bit "at my wits end" about what to do with Jack. Lately we have realized that much of Jack's recent "acting out" has been because he is BORED. I mean, there is nothing left in the house that even remotely interests him. His toys are boring, the back deck is boring, the front porch is boring, pushing the stroller is boring, and most of all, MOMMY is boring. I've been sick for a couple of days and haven't felt much like playing. So this morning when he was up and raring to go at 7:30 a.m., I was feeling a little overwhelmed at what to do with this incredibly active, incredibly bored child. In desperation I went up to the attic to see if there was anything up there he could play with. To my surprise I found several toys. I brought them all down and was pleased that Jack immediately jumped in and started playing. He singled out two particular toys, and I just had to take pictures of them. One was a blue tractor (look familiar?) and the other was a bobcat-like toy. Jack just recently watched his daddy use the bobcat for several projects in our front yard, and I thought it was hilarious that he decided to pick up a rock with his bobcat. I walked in the foyer and found the bobcat with the rock inside the bucket. Priceless!!!

That is too cute! Sometimes I wish Connor was around some men more often, because when he tries to put on my high heels I laugh, but part of me worries that he is going to be scarred later on...

Hi Betty - do you remember me? We knew each other at MBBC a looonng time ago. Does the H.M.S. Pinafore ring a bell? =O) I found your blog recently and your little Jack reminds me of my 3 yr old daughter...very adventurous. He is just so cute and you seem so happy! After I read your post that he is bored, I realized she probably is too, LOL, so I am trying to figure out ways to keep her occupied. Anyways, we are in the Chicago area & it's cool that you are over the border in IN.
