Spencer, who is three, has become my shadow. He loves doing whatever I do. When I am at their house and he sees me grab my purse to leave, he runs to get his blankie and then gets right next to me and says “me too.”
On Thursday, my daughter called about 9:30 and said Spencer was restless and wanted to go someplace but she and Anderson were too tired to do anything. So I went over and picked him up. We went to Dollar Tree to grab a few things I needed and he got to pick a treat. Then, in the car, he asked for “food toy” which is what he calls the McDonald’s play land. So off we went to McDonald’s so he could get a snack and play. When I took him home, he played for a little bit then as I was leaving, he ran to the door and said “me too.” I brought him home with me to play for a while. After a half hour, he walked to the door and said “home mom.” Off we went. His mom and I talked for a while and when I was coming home, he wanted to come back with me so I told him I would bring him with me but he had to take a nap. I brought him home with me, I got him all tucked in on the couch. He watched a cartoon for a few minutes then fell asleep. He slept on the couch for over three hours. I took him home when he got up then when I was coming home, he wanted to come home with me. I told him no. He had been with me most of the day and I needed to get some chores done. He wasn’t happy about that.
A few days ago, I put my hair back in a pony tail because it was way too hot to have my long hair down. A few minutes later Spencer came to me with a hair elastic to put in his hair. His hair is long but not that long. I wasn’t sure it would go into a pony tail because it’s so baby fine but I tried. He was so happy. He wanted me to take his picture.
Now he wants a haircut because his brother and I got hair cuts on Friday. I don’t think his mom or dad will let him get one, though.
