Blake is hooked on those little capsules that grow in the water. The other day we got like 9 packages of them because they were 20 cents at KB Toys. So Blake was taking a bath and he got two of the growing capsules. The one to your right was one of the ones that grew. Sometimes it takes a minute for the form to come to life. I took a look at it and said, Blake it's an alligator. He was excited. I needed to leave him to take care of Kalli so Joe took over.
While I'm feeding Kalli I hear Joe saying crab. I thought he was referring to the other animal that came to be. Nope, Joe came out and informed me that what I thought was an alligator was in fact a crab. But Blake only believes me apparently. We keep telling him it's a crab but he says "no crab, alligator". Oh well, maybe I shouldn't be the one teaching my children.
(In my defense I don't think the animal had completely taken form and therefore didn't look like a crab, like he does in the picture). Special parent moment.
