We had a lovely Christmas. After we opened the gifts, we gave Lucy hers. A plush toy puzzle. It is a hollow tree stump with three little squirrels hiding inside. They all have squeakers. It's a great toy.
Lucy has no idea what she is supposed to do
She tentatively chews an edge of wrapping
She moves near my husband and looks at me
My husband helped her take off some paper.
Even with one of the squirrels visible, Lucy is not really interested.
We finally placed the toy on her bed. She clearly has no idea what to do with it.
We tried putting our hands inside the stump, putting one squirrel inside and squeaking it, tossing the squirrels like tennis balls but Lucy was having none of it.
She still has not touched the toy and in fact moves to avoid it. The gift was not a success at all but we will leave it around just in case.
Today's quote is from author Edna Ferber:
Christmas isn't a season. It's a feeling.
So let's try to keep this feeling longer.
HAVE A WONDERFUL AND SAFE WEEKEND, EVERYONE!
