On the day you turned two you had no idea it was your birthday. I wanted to do something with you, but it was cold and rainy outside. So together we pulled out the ingredients for homemade play-dough, and we took turns adding each one to the bowl. I filled the measuring cup, you poured. You stirred, I stirred. When it was ready, I pulled it out of the bowl and placed it onto the bench where we dug our fingers into the soft, warm dough. You looked up at me with your big round eyes and giggled. "PAY-DO!" you said. I went and got the little bag of sequins that I bought at the $2 shop ages ago for you to add to the play-dough, and your eyes lit up when you saw the little bowl of treasures placed before you. You gingerly picked out one sequin at a time and pushed it into the gooey dough, looking up at me each time with pride at what you were creating. I grabbed my camera and encouraged you to continue playing, and you became so absorbed in your creation that you didn't even notice the camera was in my hands. When you finally finished your masterpiece of sequin indented play-dough you asked for "cuggles" so I picked you up and we snuggled together on the couch until you decided it was time for the next adventure.
