Lil' Maa-Maa's New Nickname

Before Lil' Maa-Maa was born, we were very undecided about what we would name him. He was a few days old before we finally settled on something, so until we had something official, we called him LP, as in Little Pooper. Though he's always been a pooper, he was only little for, like, 15 minutes, so that one only worked for a short time.

The big boys came up with Lil' Maa-Maa, and it stuck for a while. But now we're moving on.

Yesterday, the big boys bequeathed Lil' Maa-Maa with a new nickname that, I think, fits him pretty well. Lil' Maa-Maa, in the blogosphere, you will henceforth be known as MayDay.

(They were playing with airplanes when they came up with it . . . little geniuses!)

And also, this picture illustrates MayDay's idea of a good time . . . he gets all the cans out of the pantry and puts a refrigerator magnet on each one, then arranges them into circles and squares, or whatever he's thinking about at the time. Really, who needs toys?!?


  1. We had something quite similar to that in our living room yesterday.
    Heck, we have stuff like that scattered throughout the house all the time.

    You're right. Why do we even bother buying them toys?

  2. Once when brian was babysitting coleman was about 2 1/2 and he moved all my canned goods from the pantry to under the couch and brian never noticed. Sadly he was sitting on the couch watching a game. Not his best parenting moment.

  3. So fun, it really is amazing how entertaining cans really are. coral loves to stack them on top of each other, I mean who really needs blocks when you've got a pantry full of fun things to play with!


Sock it to me!
