His First Obsession
I first realized the obsession when we walked into Target and saw a gigantic sign of Buzz and Woody. I thought Logan was having some sort of fit. Nope. Pure joy at seeing his new best friends. I had to tear him away from the sign which only meant I had 15 minutes of complete toddler meltdown at Target.
Then came Sam's Club. I saw that Toy Story 1 and 2 were on sale for $12. I thought they would make lovely Christmas presents for Logan. Think again. When I tried to take the movies from Logan he looked at me with fire in his eyes that said, "Over my dead body, Woman!"
Since then he has probably watched Toy Story over 20 times. He sings (and conducts) to the introduction, he knows his favorite parts and screams at his not so favorite parts. When it is over he begs me to put in the second one. When I don't or when I interrupt the movie to, I don't know, FEED HIM, I know I have Toddler Hell to Pay.
In the car today I put in a Disney CD that I had found and "You've Got A Friend In Me" came on. Oh, the joy!! He was ecstatic! It was as if Woody and Buzz were in the car with him! He "la-la-ed" the entire song. When it was over he screamed until I played it again. And again. And again. I now loathe that song.
I know this should drive me crazy but it actually makes me really happy. He has his first passion. Now I can write in his baby book that when Logan was 2 he was OBSESSED with Toy Story.
It's all good!
