Look at this bounty!
Ayden had fun walking around the farm eating the banana pepper he selected out of today's harvest.
|Luckily I was able to talk him out of a jalapeno!|
Speaking of jalapeño peppers... We now have a three letter word that is not allowed to be spoken in our house. Whenever something just *might* be H-O-T, we have to spell it or say, "It's...you know..."
Ayden has totally fixated on the concept of hot and is always very concerned about it. I think it is because we are always warning him about hot things and are so serious when we do so. It's made him very cautious about hot stuff. He'll see steam, stick out his little hand and proclaim, "Hot!" He'll do the same when we draw bath water, give him his meals, goes down a slide that has been warmed by the sun. He is acutely aware of the temperature, or even the possible temperature of things, and if there's a chance it's hot he'll pass. He really dislikes getting into his carseat on a hot day but quickly calms down once he realizes it's not that bad.
Needless to say, we are working on the concept of "warm" and how it is a good thing.
What concept did your child fixate on? I'd love to hear your stories!
