He was throwing a little fit about something and started kicking the wall in his bedroom. A couple of the alphabet letters that were hung on the wall fell off due to the kicking. One of the letters hit his head. It hurt. This tragic event has remained dominant in his mind ever since that fateful day. What is hilarious to me is that he remembers exactly which two letters fell off the wall, and has mentioned them every day since the incident. I think he may associate the letters “m” and “o” with this event for the rest of his life. I can just imagine him recounting the entire incident to his kindergarten teacher on the “letter m” day.
Blake also adds a third story to his repertoire of chaotic events. Most young children are worried that there might be monsters in their beds. Blake’s concern, however, is that there might be throw up under his blanket. This is due to the fact that for about a week straight (conveniently just after we brought our newborn home), he threw up in his crib almost every night. Now, he checks under his pillow and blanket daily to make sure that there isn’t any throw up on his “sheeps” (sheets). Isn’t it sad that a two-year-old is so aware of and concerned about the presence of throw up?
Is it at all surprising that Blake’s first word was “uh-oh?” He continues to be one very concerned little boy.
