Simon’s lunch of mini corn dogs, strawberries, raspberries, grapes, and a fortune cookie. We had ice cream cake last night and Simon still wanted a fortune cookie after dinner but we thought it’d be too much sugar for so late in the evening so I said I’d pack one for him for lunch and he said “okay”. In general, Simon is a pretty reasonable boy and will accept plausible explanations. This isn’t the case when he is tired though, then he would just throw a tantrum demanding a fortune cookie and stomp and kick his feet.
Iris is curious about what Simon does at this table all day. He likes to draw and has been using crayons and markers. His favorite things to draw are cars and planes. Occasionally he will draw zebras and our family. For now, Iris just likes to grab at his crayons and markers.
We have brought out a lot of Simon’s baby toys for Iris to play with and Simon is always “trying” them out again. An expected “regression” but we tell him they are toys for babies and he has his own toys for little boys. He still likes his ride-on car but is definitely too big for it.
