You better....or else! Now I know what the else is.

So this is part2 of the video with the pop on pals. Kira shows what the else is, if she doesn't get her wheels.

We did eventually get her another set of wheels so this won't be happening on a regular basis.

You better....or else?

To set this up, the kids got these Pop on Pals toys as an early Christmas gift.

It came with 2 truck bodies, but only 1 set of wheels. This allows for the child to change the vehicle by switching out the body. However, as we have often found, its very difficult to get 2-3 year olds to share anything. Especially when its a new toy.

Kira immediately started playing with the extra vehicle body, but started asking for wheels in a very specific phrasing.

I'm not sure where she gets this language from, but i'm just going to blame the pre-school.

yea...thats it.

Also, she did name the little girl doll right after this to 'Mila'.

Candy? Candy!

I'm not going to post any photos of the kids first Halloween where they trick or treated.  Mainly because I want my parents to see them in costume, for the first time, face to face.

But I will post a photo of their "haul" since it was pretty impressive for their first time out.

They got the hang of it at the first house.  Our lovely neighbors across the street gave them several treats and that seemed to click that they get candy if they just show up at he door.  After that it was Kira who refused to stop.  Aidan seemed to be satisfied after the first 20 or so houses.  Both of them were exhausted and Aidan gave me his bucket to hold after a while.  But Kira would not let go of her treasure even with it dragging along the ground.  And when asked if they had enough, Kira would always respond with an emphatic "No" although Aidan seemed not to care after he filled his bucket.  Kira seemed to realize that more houses means more candy.
I'd like to think that this stubbornness is something she gets from her mother,  but I suspect that she gets her tenacity from me.  At least in regards to candy.  I remember being particularly obsessed with candy at an early age.  Probably part of the reason why I was so hyper active as a child.  I'm sure my mom could tell some tales.

Either way.  I think my parents, sister and brother in law will enjoy their costumes when I see them for the holidays and I look forward to posting some pics of them in the near future.  In the meanwhile I have a number of photos and videos that I will post shortly.
