Sweet Corn = Lightsaber…

“Ka-pow! Smack! Zoom!” Today we discovered that corn on the cob does not make a good lightsaber, regardless of your intentions when you are five. It also does not fly… we know because we tried! It sure is tasty though…

Oh no, Ducky!!

From the other room, I hear “Uh-oh, Ducky, oh no” and then “It’s ok, Ducky, it’s ok, I help you”. I come in to see Ducky “stuck” with one of his wings hooked around the office chair armrest, while the little guy is right there patting him and kissing him. How sweet is that, instead of yanking on him or yelling, he is consoling poor Ducky as he is stuck. It only took a second for me to free Ducky, who was then received with many “Yay, Ducky ok, love Ducky” and lots of hugs and kisses.

More ducky love….

Lil’ Duck and his beloved ducky friend are always up to something! Today it was brushing Ducky’s teeth after he had a full tantrum at the thought of toothbrushing actually happening to him….. complete with “Oh no, Ducky” and fake ducky screeches and running. I guess Ducky dislikes the toothbrush as much as Lil’ Duck does. Who can blame him when he can’t open his furry mouth……

The continuing adventures of the toddler and his duck…

The continuing adventures of the toddler and his duck… The eternal love for his duck continues, as they are still inseparable. Ducky is a much-abused but much-loved friend, who has survived many washings and coloring with all colors of the rainbow (nothing like having a duck shoved in your face while the little one proclaims “Blue ducky, Mama, BLUE!!!”) and who, despite his raggedy looks, still receives several kisses a day. The duck is now also a method of greeting his friends, as he will greet you by handing you his “DUUUUCCCKKK!” and running off. Be prepared to give it […]

Thursday Thirteen #47

Thirteen reasons why my little boy loves his duck… He can “share” all his food with the duck. He can “share” all his sippy’s/smoothies/etc with the duck, including loud smacking noises and much laughing on my part. The duck is always there waiting for him no matter how much he kicks him, hits him, throws him, leaves him, and otherwise abuses him. The duck always seems to be clean regardless of the chalk/vegetable oil/marker/food/soy milk that is spilled on him (thank you, mama and the washer). The duck can go everywhere with him, being just big enough to cart along […]

The duck’s other adventure…

The little one decided that he needed to express himself through art, and that expression would not be fulfilled with a mere scribbling of sidewalk chalk. Rather, it must be fulfilled by taking said sidewalk chalk, dipping it into a glass of water until it is well soaked, and then using it as paint on the lanai. As if that wasn’t messy enough, the duck had to get involved. Poor duck. At least he doesn’t just sit around on a bed all day, right?
