|Yesterday Harper went to Riley's birthday party. He came home with a few toys, including a little train that's also a whistle. Of course I see him walking around with it today so I blow into the whistle a few times for him. I gave it back to him and about ten minutes later it started. Of course everytime he learns something new his mom and me praise him and tell him good job. With this new accomplishment that lasted all of oh, 42 seconds. And unfortunately, that was about two hours ago. You can't take it away from him - he won't have that. If I try to trade toys with him he just takes whatever it is I want to hand him, and holds the whistle with his mouth, blowing into it the whole time.
I've begun thinking of ways for the train whistle to disappear. I've never plotted the death of a toy before. Do I just throw it out? Put it on a high shelf? How do I distract the kid? Or should I bury it in the desert, this is Vegas afterall. Maybe I can just disable the whistle.
Seeing as it's impossible to actually concentrate with this whistle - I'm not even attempting to write any articles besides this blog post. For the past hour I just opened a few windows in my browser for Treasure Trooper and Hits4Pay. That's one reason I like these programs - I can mindlessly click on some ads and not have to concentrate, but at least I make a few bucks. And I don't even have to stay on the computer - just open an ad (most have to be open for 30 seconds) and come back in a little bit. I can roll around on the floor with the kid for a little while and that's ok. Every once in a while I just reach up to the computer and click on the next ad - then it's back to banging on the drums or blowing in the whistle or dumping all the blocks on the floor, whatever the boss tells me he wants to do.
Editing the blog or writing some articles will just have to wait for bedtime.
