It’s been so interesting watching my children go from being tiny little babies, that only worried about their next mouthful of boob or the uncomfortable nappy, to actual human beings with their own defined likes and dislikes.
Along the way, I’ve learned that interested is probably the most you could ever say about our girls, in the sense that their interests are usually fleeting. But Knox? He’s committed. He’s obsessed. When he finds something that he likes, he goes in hard. All the way and he stays there, unwavering. Which is a pretty good quality to have in a husband #justsaying.
Knox has been Paw Patroling ever since before his last birthday – which was naturally a Paw patrol themed party. I’ve lost count of the range of toys he’s got strewn about his room, but not the pups! They all have their special place inside a special box. They are easily the most precious toys that he has. They keep him busy! I’ll often wonder why it’s so quiet and when I go in search of him, he’s sitting on the floor of his bedroom making Chase rescue Chickletta from another bad decision or getting Rubble to dig out Zuma from under the pup plane that Robo Dog accidentally landed in the wrong place.
So when Just Fun Kids wanted to send me the new Monkey Temple and jungle range to review, I literally could not say no. And then Knox saw it advertised on the TV and I don’t think I have ever seen his eyes go so wide! He literally begged me to get it for him for his birthday. Which made surprising him with this a couple nights ago, all the more sweet. His reaction was absolutely priceless.
Here’s a very short snippet of what went down…
Last year we had a Paw Patrol party for Knox because he was beyond obsessed with the show. That was last year though and I thought he’d get over it. But not this guy – he is STILL obsessed. When he commits, he commits! (Take note future spouse ?)
So when I surprised him with these new Paw Patrol jungle themed toys (that he’d seen on TV), he literally squealed with excitement. Because it’s late I haven’t let him open it yet, but he keeps going over to it and kissing it, then running over to me, throwing his arms around my neck and shouting “I love you Mommy!!”
I allowed them to open it yesterday afternoon and they spent the entire time wrapped up in imaginative play. Making mountain paths to cross through in order to rescue the monkey, falling through trapdoors and getting to know the new Tracker pup that they have affectionately called Crusher. Which I know is completely confusing because that’s from a different series.
Anyway, they had the best time and it was heart warming to watch them play together. When they did. Because honestly I have to tell you that all three of them never managed to play nicely together at one time for more than 5 minutes. It was either Riya and Knox or Knox and Kyla, but they could just not do it together. Either way, I’m glad that it’s roped the girls into playing with Knox because he is usually just left to sort of fend for himself while the girls play with their babies. Kids huh?!
Now I want you to experience Knox’s joy…
