We are lucky to be part of a small group of professors who get together at (self-dubbed) “Baby Club” events (Note that none of the original kids are babies anymore, but the Baby Club name has stuck nonetheless). At last night’s get together, we stayed a little too long and missed Buddy’s sweet spot for bedtime…which means that today was a bad day in our house.
With LOTS of crying.
Sometimes parenting a 2-year-old requires walking on eggshells. (Water? Ok, no water. Juice? No juice. Play? Ok, no trains. No don’t push your brother. Ok, let’s do something else…)
To distract my miserable toddler I decided to do a Halloween craft with Buddy…we were going to paint our hands black and make bats.
But Buddy didn’t want to get dirty. So that was off the table.
So he painted a bat. And added googly eyes and felt eyebrows. Um, yeah. Not our best.
