I’m watching Paw Patrol with the littlest boy this morning. We’ve been doing as much as we can to keep him happy the past couple of days. (One of his front teeth were pulled Thursday – something we weren’t quite anticipating, but had to happen following an incident with a chair and a bruised tooth.) I definitely should have been a dentist. It would have saved us considerable money, I believe – for the entire family.
So I’ve learned more and more about Paw Patrol. I’ve learned all about the various toys (he has 4 and wants every. single. one.) I’ve almost figured out the various characters. I ordered a DVD from Amazon since we can’t easily stream on our TV. He already had Meet Everest, so I ordered Marshall & Chase on the Case. He still loves Everest (she’s easy to love) but he’s coming around to all of the other episodes.
My office is sponsoring a local child for Christmas, and we were matched with a 4-year-old boy who also loves Avengers, Paw Patrol and Ninja Turtles – all things I’m becoming an expert on.
We’re trying to teach Lucas that he can’t have a toy RIGHT NOW just because he’s asking nicely – because he’s wanting a new toy every day. I’m excited to shop for this other little boy – and my own little boy – for Christmas this year. I’m just hoping my own child can keep his temper in check when we tell him “no” or that Christmas isn’t tomorrow, it’s in several weeks. I’ll be excited when he has more concept of time.
For now I just hone my Paw Patrol knowledge and trying to keep Lucas at bay when he wants yet another toy. Mommy’s going broke. And Target doesn’t have all of the ones that are listed in the set.
