Ian has decided his red ball is a meatball, and he uses it to reenact a scene from one of his videos where Snuffleupagus sings "On Top of Spaghetti" and ends up chasing his meatball. He is OBSESSED with his meatball. When we went shopping today, he just kept saying, "Go home to my meatball." He'd repeat over and over while playing with it, "This my meatball."
To capitalize on his obsession, I made homemade meatballs and sauce for dinner tonight. He normally wants nothing to do with the sauce when we have pasta, preferring to eat his pasta with just a bit of cheese. Well, he wanted a meatball, so we got him to eat the sauce on that, but he still wouldn't touch his pasta if it had sauce on it. While he was eating, he kept saying, "I won't sneeze."
Darrin and I are just constantly amazed with how his brain works and connects things, relating the unknown to the known.
You can check it out below. It's hard to hear, but before he rolls it out of his Caterpillar, he sneezes.
