Day 7 “A Favorite thing”
this is Jacob today playing with his very favorite toy, his fish bowl. He first discovered it 12 years ago when his portage worker brought it round to ours in a bag of magic toys I thought at the time might help him “catch up”. (rolls eyes at my own naivety!) Anyway, right from the start he was fascinated by this toy and loved to just put his hand in and out. He’s always had this thing about depth, exploring it and trying to get his head around it. Obviously Fisher Price had long since stopped making them so we found one on Ebay. It’s gentle crashing wave sound and inoffensive music and lights have been part of our everyday lives for over a decade. Eventually this one gave up, worn out by the constant attention, and we hunted for another. We found it…Eventually…in France…broken! But once here, a work colleague managed to mend it and here it is.
