Scenes From The Blanket.

with 2 comments

These days, we spend a lot of time on a blanket spread out on our living room floor for a certain youngster to practice her almost crawling.  I have to stay by Claire, and Avery feels like she has to stay by me.  So inevitably we all end up on The Blanket.  You probably had surmised that my world is small, you just didn’t realize that it is blanket-sized.  Here’s a typical session on The Blanket.  Exciting stuff, I know.

Now no one is happy.  Avery lovingly gave in and acknowledged her sister (read: I made her acknowledge her sister and propped Claire in her lap).  Claire just wanted the phone, not a hug.

For my personal entertainment, they are dressed in matching outfits.  Hey, if I’m going to hang out on The Blanket with two kids for extended periods of time, I might as well amp up the entertainment value in any way possible.
