Interview with Chompy at 27 months…

So, as many of you know I am now addicted to Pinterest.  For those of you who don’t know what this is, it is a social media site where you can “pin” things that you love for yourself and others to see.   For example,  I have a pin board full of DIY projects, another for yummy recipes etc.   Well, one of the things that I found was a bunch of people who had done interviews with their kids at different ages so that they could all look back and remember who that child was at each age.  

So, today, I decided to interview Chompy.    Remember, these are his answers.   Winking smile

Momma’s hero!

A red dragonfly lands on his plastic pool.  He screams.  "Bad bug.  Momma.  Pool!".  Desperate to get the offender away, he reels Momma into chasing it in circles around the yard as it lights on weeds and hedges, hides in trees and empty gardens.   Finally it flies over the fence, and he exclaims "ALL GONE BAD BUG DRAGONFLY!"    and cheers "Me did it Momma!".   Maybe next time his momma will let him know how cool, delicate, and precious a red dragonfly is, but today, she’ll let it be the enemy!

Chompy now gets beyond excited about his daddy’s backpack.  Daddy’s backpack has been the home to Chompy’s special books and toys for safe keeping while Chompy goes to school.  Since we have a couple of camping trips planned, and Chompy has his own toys that he wants to carry with him, Daddy decided that Chompy needs a backpack of his very own. 

Thank you REI for again bringing this family such joy Winking smile

I’ve never seen someone besides his Daddy get so excited about getting a new backpack Smile Like Daddy, like Chompy!!





(an aside, look how much bigger he is than the picture behind him).

Yo ho!

Chompy lately has been pretty obsessed with Pirates. 

So, during his nap today, Momma made him a pirate vest with a pattern from MADE and some fabric that she had in her stash.
