Do you remember how we got rid of the stupid bird?
Well guess who found his way back home?
Yes, Naughty bird is back, and just as naughty as ever. His latest mischief is to keep Max from doing things that I ask him to do.
Me: "Max, please change out of your pajamas and get dressed."
Max: (sitting on the floor, playing with garbage truck) "I can't get up, Naughty Bird keeps holding me down to the floor!"
Then he pretends to struggle to get up and then falls back down to the floor.
Me: "Max, could you please clean up your blocks?"
Max: "Whenever I try to clean up my blocks, Naughty Bird just messes them up again!" Then he knocks over the pile of blocks.
Needless to say, I'm getting pretty darn tired of this stupid bird. I can't figure out how he found his way back here, we even tried leaving him at the Grand Canyon when we were there a while ago.
But he came back.
Last week, Max was sitting on the floor putting together his favorite puzzle.
Me: "Hey buddy, it's time for lunch, come and eat your sandwich."
Max: (starting to get up, but then falling back onto the floor) "I can't get up! Naughty bird keeps pushing me back down!"
So I marched over, grabbed Naughty bird by his ratty old feathers, carried him to the back door and tossed him outside.
"There you go Max, problem solved, now come and eat your lunch."
Max started to get up then fell back to the floor.
I said "Hey, I just threw Naughty bird out the back door, he can't make you stay on the floor, he's outside."
Max started to stand up again but fell back on the floor, then he said "It's not Naughty Bird that won't let me get up, now it's Naughty Frog!"
So now we have a Naughty bird AND a Naughty Frog.
And a Naughty Rabbit. He showed up later that evening to prevent Max from getting his pajamas on.
