Over the past several weeks, Gavin has developed a liking for Mikayla’s old Dora the Explorer backpack. When you press on the mouth it sings a variety of Dora songs – he loves it. We took it with us on vacation, he wanted to take it everywhere and never let it go.
Well, Jeremy wasn’t wild about the idea of his son carrying around a purple backpack everywhere, so he asked me to keep an eye out for Diego’s Rescue Pack. I found one last week and we had one excited little boy. He loves listening to the Rescue Pack song and carrying around his new toy.
There has been one snag in this grand plan though. He loves both of them. He carries these things around the house ALL DAY. It is a small battle to take them away for meals, naps, bath time, bedtime, etc.. Did I also mention that these sing? I can’t tell you how many times I have listened to the “Backpack, backpack….” and “Rescue Pack! Coming to the Rescue…”. They are also fairly bulky hard plastic toys. I keep getting hit in the arms and legs when he crawls into my lap. But, who could take those toys away from this sweet little boy. Not me!
