Parenting Fun

Being a parent of small children definitely has its perks. The first being that you get to board a plane before anyone else. The second that your kids will entertain you in ways you could not imagine.

Last night Hunter was eating veggies (the small mixed frozen ones) for supper. He found a bean in there. I am not sure what kind it was, but it was flat, green and kidney shaped. He asked me if it was a magic bean and of course I said it was. I told him that if he ate it he would become invisible for a short period of time. He fell for it hook, line and sinker. My friend Erica was eating supper with me and she went right along with it too. Once he swallowed it, he chased us around the house tickling us and we pretended we had no clue where he was or what was doing the tickling. So much fun!

Cavan loves throwing treats out to our cats and he also spends a lot of time pretending to be a cat. Today he brought his small box of raisins to me and said treat and then he would meow at me. I got the idea right away. I would take a raisin and whip it across the room same as we do with our cat treats. Cavan would meow and then prance over to the raisin, get down on the floor and lick it up! ahahahhahaha! What a kid! We did that for the entire box of raisins. I am sure he licked up some cat hair and dirt, but what the heck- it was fun.

I wonder if that trick will work with other foods, or if it's just the beans ^_^

Is this a good time to remind you that you are overdue in showing pictures of your real cats?

I believe what Hunter ate was a lima bean. ... they sneakily make their way into frozen veggie mix all of the time.

I love when you mention what the boys are up to -- hiLARious!!! They both sound like quite the characters! My little brother used to ask for a "cat dish" (with cereal) and a water dish on the floor when he pretended to be a cat.
*and thanks for the encouragement! I appreciate it!
