Remember that Not Me Monday?
Yeah... like two days ago - it's been a long week already.
When Itty Bit decided he wanted to play by himself in his room?

I love sneaking up on him and catching him being good.
Usually because there's just so many darn things he could be doing not good.

Like dismantling the cute (cheap) tent on his bed.
Making the stuffed animals act out the "predator vs. prey" thing on the nature channel.
Destroying his neatly made bed (uhh... it's only neat because he doesn't sleep in it).
Or scaling the furniture against the wall to reach his piggy bank... which is his SECOND one (the first one is in a million pieces, don't ask).

Instead I find my sweet boy taking care of his stuffed animals and introducing them to his tent kingdom. Which also includes a toy tractor, various foam balls, and a bag of mini rice cakes.

Wait a minute.

A bag of mini rice cakes?

I didn't give him one. Strange.


(read: the buckaroo has hit a growth spurt and has challenged my kidproofing lately)

I digress.

I glimpse him checking out the big cow (the stuffed animal - he didn't know I was in the room yet thankyouverymuch).

Then he's explaining to his puppy that it's a John Deere tractor.

Then my cover is blown.



"MOMMY! Come see my tent!"

Of course as soon as I'm within reach he wants me to load him up with all the stuffed animals.

Whew. If only all of motherhood's tasks were this simple!

(sorry for the dimness... flash kinda thwarts being sneaky with the camera!)

He is so cute. I love the one of him reaching for you.

Oh that's too cute. I love the tent. W.W would do the same thing, fill it full of stuffed animals. :)

How cute! I love it when the kids make use of their little tents and are lost in their own world. Of course cleaning everything up and putting it away afterwards is quite the challenge. ;)
