128 potty-chart stickers later…..
While I’m not impressed with the construction of the toy, it is the only thing Seth has wanted for the last, um, 6+ months, so we spared no degree of fanfare in putting on the last sticker for his potty training chart, and watching his joy overflow as he found the (Disney Cars character) the Dinoco helicopter in our mailbox today.
Overall it was kind of a miserable day. Temps were in the low 90s, and our downstairs air unit is not keeping up with the heat very well; my allergies are rearing their ugly heads; and both Seth and Erin seemed to want only mommy-attention today. My day of rest, well, wasn’t.
But that picture of Seth, and the hundred pleas of “Momma, will you play cars and helicopters with me?” that followed make up for it.
