Marshall! Marshall! Marshall!
Little MPB continues to learn new words every single day. The other day I tried counting how many actual, clear words he used in 1 day. I stopped counting when he got to 32 by lunch time. He’s still not using a lot of multi-word “sentences”, but I’m confident those are just around the corner.
But, remember how when Mr. MPB was away I let Little MPB watch more Paw Patrol then normal? While as we watched Paw Patrol, I taught him all the puppies names – Marshall, Chase, Zuma, Skye, Rubble, Rocky and Everest. He now knows his colours, his 1, 2, 3’s and his puppies.
He seriously loves all puppies/dogs – he’s a boy who’s meant to have a dog (sort of like his mom, who is also meant to have a dog).
But, he especially loves all things Paw Patrol. He now has a very clear preference to drink out of his Paw Patrol cup and he can even point to each one of the puppies on the cup and identify them by name. I’m trying to tell myself it’s a great developmental sign that he can identify and name each one of the puppies. You know, I did good by letting him watch Paw Patrol because it was necessary to teach him all the puppy names. Really, it was good parenting, right?
But, then this morning happened…
Little MPB work up chanting Marshall! Marshall! Marshall! on repeat for a good 2+ minutes.
When we got downstairs he went straight to the TV, pointed at it, and once again started chanting Marshall! Marshall! Marshall!
So, maybe I should stop trying to convince myself it’s a good thing he knows all the puppy names. Maybe I actually just need to admit my kid is addicted to Paw Patrol.
I also can’t help but wonder, when we eventually get another puppy, is it’s name going to be Marshall?
