The Milk Monkey has been heading off to the backup daycare a lot this month. As I mentioned in another post, my employer provides 20 days of backup daycare, and we had quite a few left for the little guy at the end of this year so we’ve been using them up to give Mummy a bit more quiet time to take care of some other projects she’s got going on.
He really likes getting out and going to see his “friends” at the daycare, and he prefers to walk and hold my hand as we head through the building. He always waves and says “Hi” to every person we pass – it’s like he’s the little mayor of daycare town.
But, even the mayor needs downtime, and apparently when our little guy is kicking back at home, he likes to do it dino style.
We’ve had this little dinosaur costume since the Professor was a little guy and the Milk Monkey just loves it. Every now and then as we’re getting him dressed, he’ll spot it hanging in his closet and starting pointing at it while saying “Me, Me, Me”. Of course, we usually go for it, especially if it’s just a quiet day at home for him. Though he did accompany me to the supermarket while wearing it once. It’s very cute to see the little dinosaur stomping around the house, dancing to “the Wiggles” and giving the occasional little “roar”.
