So, Ryan was almost late to work this morning because he couldn’t find his wallet.  Olivia had just woken up and he was looking all around the house for his missing wallet.  (He eventually found it and all was well.)  Later this afternoon, Olivia was taking a bath with a walrus bath toy.  Her eyes lit up and she said, “A walrus. . .like daddy’s.”  I didn’t catch on and I kinda laughed and said, “Daddy doesn’t have a walrus.”  She was very persistent in talking about daddy’s walrus.  Finally, Olivia said, “Daddy couldn’t find his walrus. . .it was missing.”  Then, I realized she was talking about his wallet.  I tried correcting her, but she wouldn’t accept that it wasn’t a walrus.  I had to chuckle at the thought of Olivia thinking daddy was searching all over the house for a walrus.  She must have decided a walrus must be pretty important because she carried it around all day.  She even named him “Comfy.”  That girl always keeps a smile on my face.
