We should have known we had a real problem on our hands when we went to a friend's birthday party two weeks ago. At the house, Jacob discovered their all-in-one printer/scanner/fax/photocopier/Ginsu knife set. He went, "Oooohhh, aaahhh!" They were nice enough to photocopy something for Jacob. That was his favorite part of the evening. He even talked about it the next day. It was much better than helping blow out candles or eating cake.
Now every time we go to the library, visiting at least one photocopier is part of the agenda. He even made poor mommy lift him up so he could see better when he was lifting the door and pushing buttons. Photocopiers are so fascinating that Jacob has left off looking at the globe. Maybe the plans for world domination are finished and now he needs to build equipment. Which is what he started doing today. At first, he gathered supplies:
|Could MacGyver make these into a copier? I think not!|
If that isn't mad scientist behavior, you tell me what is. Notice how Lucy runs away, like any sensible woman would!
