That's How We Roll!
Some times we have to get creative when faced with day after day indoor parenting (ooops, I mean playing, yeah, playing). The ridiculous Bahrain heat being as it is, we have made our living room into what our Corpus Christi driveway once was... a place to ride bikes and be pulled in the wagon. Tanner enjoys taking his trike for a spin around the pool table and Gavin has decided that wagon rides are the greatest mode of toddler transportation.
Recently Gavin "discovered" Elmo. We just started watching Sesame Street in the morning when Ramadan started. Gavin displayed an instant liking for the furry red muppet and noticed the Elmos that have been patiently waiting for someone to break them out of the dust covered toy box. Somehow while Tanner was a tot we acquired 4 of them, each one about half the size of your average 4 year old, each a gift from family or friend.
We have: (in no particular order)
1) A plain stuffed Elmo
2) Hokey Pokey Elmo
3) Tickle Me Elmo
4) and last but not least Espanol Elmo (very handy in a country that primarily speaks Arabic) LAUGH!
Gavin thinks they are ALL hilarious and carries them ALL around with him... they look like the Gavin groupies! I've never seen an 18 month old with his own wide eyed, red haired entorage!
