Yesterday was a grumpy day for Eddie. For whatever reason napping was not happening. Cort had homework to do, so I whisked Mr. McWhineyPants off to my parents for a little while and then to my brother's for a bit. Upon returning, Eddie ate dinner, but was still full of screams, so Cort decided to wash the vehicles and to take Eddie outside with him.
Eddie LOVES playing outside. I don't know what it is, but my usually extremely mobile toddler can sit in the grass for 10 minutes before he feels the need to move. I think he just likes BEING in the outdoors.
He happily played with toys and pointed at our tree and at the birds and at daddy for almost the entire first vehicle-washing.
But when Cort started washing his truck, Eddie was on the MOVE! That was interesting stuff...a TRUCK!
He so badly wanted to walk over and "help" his Dad-do. By the way, Cort JUST mowed, but noticed Eddie's little piggies are totally buried in the grass? sigh...so cute.
In fact, while I was busy snapping pictures, Eddie made his way to the driveway and the hose. Oh BOY was that fun! Cort actually said, "I sort of want him to discover the nozzle and accidentally spray himself in the face!" Um? not nice, Dad-do. Although I agree it would be funny...until the crying starts.
Ed never figured out the nozzle, but by this time he was getting pretty grassy and kind of wet. Not my favorite combo right before Jammy Time.
But once he got a little taste of "helping" daddy? There was no more just sitting in the lawn and being cute like this.
