Audrey’s little guy Benjamin is obsessed with Dora.
There are a few words he says very clearly. Among them are: “Mama.” “Grandma.” “Puppy.” “Owk” (out). “No” (of course). And “Dora.”
So when I saw a big Dora doll at the store the other day, I knew I had to get it for him. I couldn’t wait to surprise him with it.
He immediately loved his life-sized Dora:
We decided to keep Dora at my parents’ house so he could play with it when he visits (which is mostly every day).
Of course, Benjamin has a 4-legged cousin who loves big, soft toys, too. And we already know she’s a bit of a thief (a cute one!) when it comes to objects she wants to snuggle with.
So it was really no surprise to find Ryder under the table at my parents’ house today with what she has decided is her new toy:
I guess it’s a good lesson in sharing for both of them, no?
