I had Jackson sleep overnight at my house from Friday to yesterday.
I called him to the sliding door to show him the birds feeding. I forgot about two-year-olds.
He came to the door, looked at the birds, and let out a yell, and was totally happy when all of the birds disappeared.
I only have him over once in a while, so he (and the others) are pretty much allowed anything they want to do. I took the chance and hemmed a tablecloth, knowing that he loves machines, pushing buttons, and trying things out. Whatcha doing? he wanted to know. And played with the on-off button, the thread, and watched how the machine worked. Then he grabbed the scissors. Since they are sharp, but have rounded tips, we tried them out. I let him cut paper (helping), ribbon and a bit of fabric. When he was satisfied, I put the scissors away.
He wrestled with me - he started it! and he giggled.
His mother came around noon to pick him up. We went shopping together, and he fell asleep on the way to drop me off.
