easy child refers to himself as "that mommy guy" with reference to his little ring-tailed, orphaned "charge". The little bandit is gowing like a weed and friendly as can be. He uses his little "hands" to explore every nook and cranny he can find and loves to torment wee difficult child's new dog. He loves strings, shiney hotwheels cars, little plastic army guys, and following whoever is moving about the house. *** Last night, easy child and baby bandit went outside (which the bandit loves), and easy child taught him how to climb the hitching post. I do beleive it was one of the funnier things I've witnessed...a 6 foot tall strapping young man, helping a small ring-tailed critter up and down a post in the ground until the little critter "got it" on his own. *** And then the bandit was in Disneyland. The "mommy guy" sat on the top rail, babytalking to the bandit, while the bandit ran up and across and down, over and over and over, like a child on playground equipment. *** We raised these things when I was young, but I had forgotten how much fun they are. But my furniture is no longer safe.
