Earlier today Charlie did something ridiculously cute. He found me in the bathroom before I shut the door. Apparently I am not supposed go to by myself, so he brought me his brown fuzzy mouse toy. He left it in the doorway then scampered off. I couldn’t help but giggle.
Charlie: Look Mom! I brought you a present!
Me: Oh really! Just what I always wanted!
Charlie: *scampers off* Play?
Me: *tosses the toy down the hallway*
Charlie: YAY it’s play time! *scamper, scamper, skid, pounce* This is my favorite thing!
Occasionally Charlie will leave his mouse, fuzzy ball, or crinkle ball in my office, the doorway of the bedroom, in the middle of the kitchen floor, under one of the kitchen table chairs, or near the bathroom door. While he may have simply stopped playing with a given toy at that spot, it may very well be his kooky way of reminding us to play with him. He hasn’t figured out how to bring the toy back but he does certainly enjoy it when we throw a toy for him! He’s really cute that way.
