Summer of the Bah Mower

Who would have known that this lawn mower would have been one of Benny's favorite toys?  Should have has wheels.  Anything with wheels ranks pretty high for Benny.  He says 'lawn mower;'  it comes out as 'bah mower,' ---something like that.  This is how he asks to go outside---he looks at me and says "Bah Mower?"  Mommy's interpretation---"Hey mom.  Can we go outside so I can play with my lawn mower?"  When we go for walks, he is very excited about anyone using their 'bah mower' to cut their grass.

Here he is in action with his beloved lawn mower.  However, as I write this, I think he might have a new outdoor passion that trumps the lawn mower.  This is digging in the dirt.  I planted some flower seeds with him outside maybe two weeks ago.  He thought it was great.  Now he has a little spot in one of our beds that I let him dig in.  So much fun.

For indoor play, Benny enjoys his barn and animals.  He puts the animals in and out of the barn, has the farmer drive the tractor, gives the animals a drink of water, and feeds the animals from a play bucket of apples.  Yesterday, he came up with an even better idea.  The animals need to eat Cheerios.  He got a handful of Cheerios, put them on the coffee table and let each of the animals have some.  There you have it.  Benny's farming secret.  You ought to be feeding your livestock Cheerios.

Farmer Benny.

Gotta give the animals a drink.
