Pay Attention


Scorch has three lovies.  He was a baby that needed to be swaddled until he was almost a year old- that child loved to be wrapped up! By the end there was only one swaddler that fit him- a blue Miracle Blanket.  When he finally outgrew the swaddle, our awesome nanny took the Miracle Blanket, cut it up into 6 pieces and made little blankies for Scorch. 3 of them remain and they are, without a doubt, his most prized possessions.  They are also the only things of Scorch’s that are off limit to the Bean (as her lovies are to him).

This morning, Beaner was evidently not getting enough attention from her big brother, so she swiped those blankies right away from Scorch while he was coloring.

Only he didn’t notice.

So she yells to him from across the room, “I have your blankies!”

No response. She moves a little closer to him.

“Scooorch- I have your blankies!”

He’s still coloring away.

“Scorch! Look at me!”


She finally put all three of the blankies on her head, marches right up to him, hits him in the arm and says

“I. Have. Your. Blankies. Come get me now, please.”


Gotta love a girl who just won’t be ignored!
