Feeling a little chatty today. Ahem.
I took Nick to Home Depot yesterday to buy a 2×4 to use as a balance beam. I got a chance to see some of the PT he does at school and much of it are things that we could easily be practicing at home, assuming I have them on a to-do list to cross off.
Our 2×4 is nowhere near as nice as the school’s but ours was only $2.30. The school’s might actually be a 3×3, but I’m calling it close enough.
Anyway, Nick was very happy with our new purchase and apparently felt a certain amount of ownership. Maggie came home from school and a melee ensued over the 2×4 piece of lumber on our living room floor.
They took turns. Only because an adult was standing there making sure no one took a 2×4 to the head.
Today, minutes after Maggie got home from school, I came into the living room to see Nick stretched out (the boy is l-o-n-g) on the 2×4.
“Are you lying on that so Maggie can’t get on it?”
“Yes. It’s mine.”
At least he’s honest.
I guarantee you if I had bought two of them, no one would want to use either of them.
