Tunnel (of) Love

At our Friday playgroup a few weeks ago, Miss Amy let all the kids explore IN and OUT and THROUGH using a play tunnel. At least, she tried to let all the kids use the tunnel, but once mine got over his initial fear he spent the whole hour climbing back and forth trying to keep everyone else out. He would speed-crawl right to whatever end a kid was trying to enter through and sit on his massive thighs, silently saying “MY TUNNEL MINE MINE MINE”.

A good mother would have used that opportunity to teach Baby Evan the importance of sharing and taking turns and how good it feels when we can all play nicely together.

Me? I just bought him his own damn tunnel.

P.S. HE SAID BALL. AND KNEW WHAT HE WAS TALKING ABOUT. “Bal bal bal bal bal bal” and then he goes looking for a ball. Not like “ma ma ma ma ma ma” when he goes looking for some lint to chew on. BALL is officially his first word.

    So this means Evan is a baller, right? Yay for first words! I love the tunnel thing, and am wondering when the cats will try to climb in. My cats are quite fond of tunnels.

    Where did you get that tunnel and how much was it?

    Niko loves crawling under/through things. He’s got a very short tunnel/tent thing and he likes to sit under an occasional table, and also under the sewing cabinet. And behind this one big chair that has a blanket under it. And under his crib. He’d get a huge kick out of a long tunnel.

    It’s possible I gave birth to a troll.
