Controversy or Debate
Okay; so Kenny's been blogging for two days now and he already has more comments than I've ever had on a single post. If you know us at all, you know we're highly competitive..it's almost unhealthy. Anyway, he says I don't have as many comments because I don't talk about things that can be debated or discussed; I just mention an event that happened....so I guess I'll give the debate thing a whirl...
....I can't think of anything right now, so until then, I'm going to talk about Avery's infatuation with having things around her neck. As you can see from the pictures, it can consist of necklaces, play phone chords, or pretty much anything else she can find at the time. For about a week, it was a deflated balloon that still had the string tied onto it. At church Sunday night it was the ribbon from the songbook. You think I'm kidding, but anything the child gets her hands on that looks like it might be long enough to go around her head, that's where it goes. She even has a monkey who's hands velcro to each other...so she literally has a monkey on her back when she gets his arms around her neck!
I've often considered that this could be a major choking hazard, so I've tried to find more necklaces that are intended to be there instead of things that could get wrapped around to tightly. Of course there are the days when only the phone or balloon will do, so I supervise her with an extra careful eye.
I guess I'll continue to talk about Avery until I can find a debatable topic. I don't think I'll ever run out of material for her. Maybe I could make a list! Maybe it could be the top ten silliest things she's done up to this point. I'm sure Kenny could help out with that one.
