Step On It

Thanks for all the cheery birthday and blogiversary wishes! Our hearts are warmed. Lara even wrote a lovely post for Q at her place.

It’s been another long day of giving demos and answering questions in my best professional manner, but things are going well. I am glad I’m not going to Germany on Friday for the next tradeshow and instead get to go home to Q.

A few more pictures from the weekend: Q and I are playing a new game that involves me finding things on the ground that are in the direction in which I want us to travel. I encourage him to run over and step on it, and while it doesn’t eliminate all disagreement in where we’re going, it helps a lot.

What a great idea! I'll have to try that too! Thanks for coming by my site the other day. :-)

Great idea! Next time you play check anything iron for the name of my town -- it's found on sewer grates and manhole covers nationwide!

You are so creative! That's what it takes to deal with all the struggles of raising a child. Very admirable.

It's hard to remain creative...

Fabulous idea that keeps the tots engaged and yet gets things done. I love how you're exposing Q to things people otherwise would just walk over. Hopefully he'll develop an appreciation for such things and take time in life when he's older to enjoy them.

There was a moment when I couldn't find anything interesting enough to which to direct him, but he found a pile of leaves on his own, and starting sifting through them. Oops!
