Just Kicking It

One of Murrow’s birthday presents from Owen and Evan was a drumming-monkey-with-little-plastic-balls-dealio. You (meaning the kid) are supposed to take one of three balls and push it through one of three holes and the monkey will do a little drumming dancing thing. After 3 months with this toy, Murrow just barely gets it. Every other kid who comes over seems to instinctively know what to do with the ball and loves the monkey. Murrow doesn’t even seem to notice the monkey’s song and dance. What he HAS started to do is take one of the little balls, roll it on the ground, run over to it, and kick it across the room. I find soccer to be terribly boring (sorry, I just do), so this isn’t the happiest development for me. But for now, it is fun to watch.
