More and more, I feel like Oliver has developed animal like traits. He does things that remind me so much of certain animals! I thought I would share with you the animals that Oliver resembles..
I’m sure you’ve all had it, you try and strap your child into their car seat or buggy and all those limbs start flailing. I have it pretty much every time, but I’m sure that Oliver suddenly develops an extra few arms, I manage to hook one arm in and go to strap the other one in, but oh wait…he’s no wiggled out of the other side..I give up!
I’m sure there must be some goat in him somewhere. He climbs EVERYTHING, nothing is safe anymore. Even the most precarious places, he will try to climb. I tell him off, take him down from whatever ridiculous place he has climbed. Yet five minutes later, I walk in to find him yet again standing on the dining table. I GIVE UP!
Another goat trait he has is head butting or head ramming. My little boy has permanently got a bruise on his forehead from where he insists on running up to things and banging his head into them. The worst part about this is he likes to do it to his parents heads too, so we all end up with a sore head!
Well this one is probably the same with most toddlers! The cheekiness is unreal, if I say no, I’m pretty sure that within 30 seconds he will be trying to do it again!! He has this little cheeky grin on his face when he does something he knows he isn’t allowed to do. He’s just such a little monkey!
A Sniffer Dog
Oliver can find food ANYWHERE! I will have a cereal bar tucked into the depths of my work handbag, and Oliver disappears of and comes back with it in his hand! He loves his food, and if I’ve snuck off to sneakily munch something ‘nice’ (i.e. chocolate) he will appear at the oppurtune moment meaning I have to share my goodies!
Does your child remind you of an animal? Let me know in the comments
