for christmas, i gave the tot a golden retriever. he loves this huge one at ikea, he hugs it everytime he sees it at the display.
we came home, he played with his cars at the living area as usual before heading to his room to change out his clothes. he was skipping to his room and took a step back when he saw the dog and knelt down speechless and in shock
i was enjoying his reaction while he was mumbling, “whats that, whats that?”
when i told him that’s his christmas prezzie, he said, “that’s not real?”
he wanted to name the dog “heidi”, but next day, upon remembering harold’s (harold and the purple crayon) dog’s name is lilac, he named the retriever “lilac”
the dog is basically around everywhere, i have to say initially the dog freaked me out abit because its so huge, it looked like another person suddenly appearing in the middle of the hallway or on the sofa. the tot’s so delighted in having lilac around 😀
