Such Pitifulness

If you ask him, Niko will tell you that he only has one true joy in his life – his disco ball and bell. Of course, he completely ignores the fact that he loves to play peek-a-boo with Reyna, but that’s not important right now. What’s important is that disco ball and bell. Poor Niko was devastated last week when he broke it by pulling the bell out of the ball. I tried to fix it, but the bell just wouldn’t stay in place. It took me a few days to get to the store to buy him a new one, and during that time Niko was a very depressed bird. I’ve never heard him so quiet. I tried swapping it out for a different toy, but he wasn’t interested. He didn’t even want to play with Reyna. He’s happy now, though, since he has the new disco ball and bell. He’s back to his old self, chirping and swinging around with one foot holding on to the bell. It’s amazing what a difference one little toy makes.

Jeff – please don’t buy anymore insanely addictive toys for the critters in the house – I can’t handle the withdrawal symptoms.

Maybe you should just stock up or have Jeff stock up for you on disco balls and bells since Niko likes them so much!!! :)Mom
