It becomes an obsession with them--be it a favorite blankie or stuffed animal.
Moochie has two obsessions.
One of those happens to be his pajamas.
Last fall, when the weather was cold, and he was a little over 18 months old, we bought him a couple of pairs of long sleeved footed jammies.
He LOVES these things.
So much so that he refused to give up wearing them to bed when the temperatures started to rise in the spring/early summer and putting him to bed in too-tight footed jammies would be considered child abuse.
In a fit of frustration, and thinking I could get him to give up his tired old jammies, I cut off the legs and arms.
No dice. He still demands to wear them. Sigh.
The second Mooch-fixation is absorbent and yellow and porous is he.
That's right, Sponge Bob Square Pants.
However to the 2 year old tongue Sponge Bob Square Pants is translated to Bob Bob!
Now as the weather is getting "cooler" I've decided to see if I can get one obsession to cancel out the other.
Bob Bob flannel for new Moochie jammies.
Wish me luck!
