And it appears, Mr. M's & my skin complexion combo is a win-win for little man.
He spent all day Friday out in the sun. Peak sun hours. We swam, we played with the sand & water table, okay, so maybe I sat beside the table
Payton, however, after a quick sniff, was not fooled by such imagination.
That said, I just realized, that was the first time I've really seen J's imagination take off and start creating stories. My sister-in-law has often told me how she loves listening in on my niece when my niece doesn't realize it to hear the stories she crafts. Up to this point, J will be going on & on, but it was mostly incoherent to my ear.
This was very clear and well thought out... And it continued when we walked down to the park, as J wanted to play fast food service person with me... First he served me, then I served him. Over.and.Over. His top choices were pizza and nuggets. I, of course, requested ice cream.
Here are some pics of him enjoying his table...
I have to add, I LOVE the umbrella attached. It actually came with his picnic bench Grandma & Grandpa M got him, but as we've put that in the basement for J to use as a coloring table, we haven't used the umbrella. Since the water table had a spot for an umbrella, I decided to see if I could cross brands & it worked wonderfully! J even did a pretty good job at staying under it.
