Fascination with Dried Leaves
Ever since Ayden started walking, he won’t want me to carry him in the playground anymore. He’ll want to explore and touch every single thing. I find it cute, exactly like Ethan. I brought Ethan to the playground every day too when he was as young as Ayden and continued until this year when he started school in the evening session so he doesn’t have time to go to the playground during weekdays anymore. Pity that big boy of mine…
Anyway back to Ayden. He has this strange fascination with dried leaves. The first thing he does each time we reach the playground is to grab hold of a leaf on each hand and continues walking around with them.
Seriously he’ll bring them home! If I take those leaves away from him he’ll be extremely unhappy and will run to get another! There’s nothing I can do to take them away until we are back home and he’ll put them away nicely in one of my pots.
See? Even if I distract him with the slide also he’ll still be holding on to those leaves. I bring him on the swing also he won’t let go. I sing “Let It Go! Let It Go” also won’t work. So I have no choice but to let him bring those leaves home and fill up my pot. I don’t understand his fascination with dried leaves but I do hope that it is just a phase that he’ll outgrow soon…
