Froggy and Friends
SwingDaddy and Q-ster spent the weekend at the Reno Air Races, so Buster and I had a cozy weekend at home - Lego, Cheerios, and lots of snuggles. (SwingDaddy isn't particularly fond of the smell of oats, so we wait until he's out of town to indulge in Cheerios.)
We made a special lunch too. According to Buster's new literary friend Froggy, the best lunch is a hot dog and flies, since he is a frog, after all. We simulated the flies with raisins.
Buster's piano teacher has him do a exercise where he taps his fingers one at a time to a rhyme called "Munchy Mouse," which builds strength in his little fingers. She has a tiny toy mouse made of fuzzy grey felt that she puts under his hand to remind him to keep his palm up.
We've been using random items to take the place of Munchy Mouse, so he decided to make himself one out of Lego. You can just see the small grey ears that he put on top of the brick, which has a special extension piece to hold the red nose. Perfect.
