I just printed off 5 new coloring pages free from the internet…all of Nemo. After Josiah’s breakfast swim session aka: breakfast, we’ll color swfishes…followed by some more fish-related play I am sure. He is obsessed with dolphins and whales and of course, the Disney classic.
And yes, I am a little protective and totally fast forward through the shark parts and a few other scenes…even though Josiah backs away from the tv at any given moment- no matter what is happening.
Of course, he hasn’t completely abandoned his first love- Clifford. Although, he is now partial to Clifford’s younger years… “puppies, puppies” is what my little 2 1/2 year old chants when he wants to watch the puppy years dvds. And we have introduced puppy baths…so Josiah loves to get a bowl filled with a miniscule amount of water and bathe his toy puppy, or duck, or donkey (he even tried his stuffed dolphin alas..).
In other news- I am staring at my daily planner which has BIG BOLD and brightly colored words covering Friday/Saturday/Sunday…Potty Training! Ack. I’m gonna try the naked route for a few days full force and see what happens. Yes, I’m nervous. Yes, I’ve prayed a lot.
