During a phone conversation last Thursday with my friend, Bev, she mentioned that the following day, she would be baby-sitting her eight-month old grandson, Tanner, AND her two-year old great niece, Stella. Then she added: “So if you have any free time, stop by “Romper Room”.
I decided to take her up on her offer and went for a visit Friday afternoon. Yes, her den did look a bit like Romper Room – with toys everywhere. She even has a child-sized Adirondack chair, which Tanner was using to practice his standing.
He’s looking rather proud of himself. I can’t believe he’s already eight months old.
The chair was just the right size for Stella, and she spent a few minutes reading to Tanner.
Tanner is such a busy little boy, it took me SO many shots to get a good picture of that one little curl.
Speaking of curls, Stella has an abundance. So many curls for a two-year old.
Bev, enjoying the role of “Nana”.
And before my Romper Room visit was over, I just had to get a little of Tanner’s “sugar”.
After I typed that last sentence, I started to wonder: do folks still say that they’re “getting a baby’s sugar”? Is that phrase out-dated? Is it just something we Southerners say?
