Once again we're in a new semester, and Jahred has yet another new schedule. Seriously, it keeps a Mom on her toes organizing clinical rotations, pre-school, gymnastics and yoga (thats for me).
Since Jahred is occasionally home during the day, he thought he would take it upon himself to document some of Axel and I's strange behavior (we had no idea normal people don't do these things).
First of all, we made an interesting new toy involving five vintage silk scarves from the thrift store and an old can from Progresso Italian Bread Crumbs. Total cost of toy, $1.25 (it was 50% off day for the scarves). Amazingly simple was the construction of this device: tying the scarves together, slitting the lid of the bread crumb container...you get my drift I'm sure.
Loads of fun with this game, pulling it out, stuffing it in, and most of all, running wild dragging an unbelievably long tail!
The other behavior apparently bordering abnormal is the fact that Axel thinks there is a whale in my mouth. Yes, a whale. It took me a few days, but I totally get why he might think this. In several movies, books and folktales, people or fish get swallowed by whales. It's fairly common. And what do you see as you are about to become lunch? Well, it's the same anatomy of our own throat; a pink bulging tongue, a round dark opening and a uvula right in the middle. No idea how this game got started, but Axel simply loves looking for my whale, and although he has searched for whales in other peoples mouths, mine is the best...trophy anyone?
So there you have it, our dirty laundry and guilty pleasures. Two and a half years alone with a child can seriously drive you mad, unless of course you have some cheap entertainment.
