Glow Eyes In The Dark
When I brought this home and showed Cruzito, he spotted the eyes (which move when you shake the book) he was grabbing for it before I even sat down. I managed to get through reading the whole book but had to hang onto it because he kept trying to take it off me lol. I was going to let him read it by himself until I found out on the very last page was a pop up bat and thought.... 'nahh.. he will try and rip that out.' Sure enough when I'd turned the last page he tried pulling the wings off lol. Funny kiddo.
I have also decided to stop leaving books (the cardboard kind) in his cot. For starters he doesn't stay in the cot since his new talent is breaking out of jail lol (I used to let him read his books until he fell asleep). But the main reason I don't let him have them is because when I take the books out, I notice that a certain someone takes great pleasure in chewing off the spines or corners off the books. And yes I do feed him before I put him to bed LOL.
To date he has ruined about 4 books. They are still readable but don't look all that good now.
What did you get in your Mailbox this week??
