First a little housekeeping. Don't forget to enter the 101st post contest. Just leave a comment here for a chance to win some lovely earrings from my Etsy shop.
Now on to our regularly scheduled post.
Oh the things that will fascinate and occupy a toddler for hours. Yesterday some crews were chopping down a tree on our street. When we returned from gymnastics, we found trucks and machines and men doing all sorts of work. Bunny stood stock still and screamed "Trucks, mommy."
So we sat down on our front porch to watch the show. There was a Bobcat thing with a claw/shovel that would pick up the already chopped branches. It would then carry them to a wood chipper. The wood chipper would chop them up and spray the chips into a waiting truck.
Bunny watched this for at least a 1/2 hour. She was fascinated. She kept asking questions which I answered to the best of my ability. I was a little distracted. All I kept thinking of was Steve Buscemi (name that movie for 5 points).
Well after they had cleaned up the branches and loaded the machines on the truck, I thought it was time to go inside. But no. By that time, Bunny had discovered a colony of ants living in a crack on one of the front porch steps. "Oooo a colony" she cried (yes she knows its a colony of ants, she loves bugs almost as much as dinosaurs).
So we spent the next 1/2 hour sitting on the porch looking at the ants. At first she tried to feed them leaves. But then she settled in watching them carry things to and from the colony. She would crouch down real low to get a good look, just staring. Then she would get up and move to a different location to get a better view.
Oh to be two again and be fascinated by the simplest of things.
