Today's big adventure turned out to be not such a big adventure. We were meant to go to the zoo today but we decided to postpone that trip until the end of the week...something to look forward to. Besides, the weather will be a bit warmer by then.
We went today for lunch to Chick-Fil-A, Seth's favorite restaurant. Afterward he played in the enclosed play area. Also today we've worked on several fun projects. I managed to work on a few of the paperweight kits while Seth painted and cut paper and punched shapes out of his paper and other assorted fun things.
There is something funny I want to tell you about. First I must explain that Seth is accustomed to going to sleep with the television on. While I don't think this is a very good idea, it's not my business to change it.
The first night of Seth's stay, I put him in the bed that folds out from the chair in my studio. The television there only picks up a few of the cable stations and none of them are always-cartoons channels. Not one appropriate thing was on the tube when Seth went to sleep. I suggested that I could put on a tape. The only movies I could offer him are from my Doris Day collection. I showed him a stack of about 6 movies...he shuffled through with a "no"..."no"..."no"...all the way until he saw it was the last one. "The Thrill of It All" just happens to be one of my favorite Doris Day movies.
The funny thing is this movie has become a favorite for Seth. We've watched it every single night and a few times during the day too. He's even memorized certain parts.
He and Rich have gone now to the park to play Frisbee. I'm going to see how productive I can be...
