Where have I been, you’re probably asking yourself right now. I’ve been busy. I’ve taking on an additional two year old, who just so happens to have the same name as Little Man, so it’s been a little busy around here.
LM and LM2 are quite cute together. They’re cousins, actually. His daddy and I are cousins, so that makes LM and LM2 1st cousins, once removed. Or is it 2nd cousins? Actually, they’re not even blood related because my cousin’s daddy and my daddy are step brothers from my granddaddy’s second marriage.
Other than having to use full names around the house when trying to get one or the other’s attention, it hasn’t been all that bad. They get along pretty well together. Unlike LM and his other friend WB – remember him? They share a birthday? When they get together, they behave like siblings, poking and teasing, taking toys from each other just for fun and putting them where the other can’t get it. There’s a lot of screaming and yelling going on. You know, sibling stuff. Stuff I wouldn’t know about because I’m an only child. We call LM and WB Forrest and Bubba. One of the nursery workers at our church call them “two wild and crazy guys!” They’re just that kind of pair.
(If you ever really want to laugh, check out some of the old SNL skits – they rock!)
So anyway, I’ve been taking care of LM2 during the day since Wednesday. His mom runs a daycare and they’ve been closed for staff training so she asked me to help out. We trade babysitting often, so it was a no-brainer. Plus, it gives LM someone to play with!
Speaking of, they’re both upstairs unsupervised while I type this. Hmmm…. maybe I should go check on them.
