The bad news is that I threw out my back on Sunday. Fortunately, it wasn’t nearly as bad as last time and essential oils have been making a huge difference. Today I had an appointment with my old neighbor, who is also a physical therapist. I took Tater Tot over to her house for a session. Her work area is actually set up in the garage, so out there we went to get to work. She put a blanket on the floor for Little Miss and I reached into the diaper bag for some toys for her to play with. My neighbor then placed this activity cube on the blanket. I mentioned that I was looking for one of those for Little Miss and you could literally see the wheels spinning in her head. Her youngest is 4 1/2 years old and she was looking to get rid of it. We quickly arranged a sale and I walked away with a really cool activity cube for a steal of a price, as well as getting my back tuned up and cleared again for running.
When we got home I put the cube in the family room, showed Little Miss a few things she could try and let her go to town. At first, she was more interested in using it to pull up on:
However, she then got interested in one of the sides. She was particularly fond of opening and closing the door- she must’ve spent at least 10 minutes on that one activity. You can tell how focused she is just by looking at her tongue:
I haven’t seen her really explore the other sides yet, but there’s always tomorrow.
