from lessons learned

Be a lifelong “becomer.”


Always keep extra batteries on hand. One of his most loved perpetual motion toys requires batteries. Unfortunately, we hadn’t gotten a fresh supply of them last week when we went shopping. The battery died yesterday. The movement of that particular toy is a constant during his waking hours. He’s hooked on the thing. He took the toy apart several times — hoping that placing the old battery back in would fix the problem. When that didn’t work, he took the main piece off the base and just twirled the circles around and around with his hands for a while. There’s a fresh battery in the toy this morning and he’ll be very happy to “turn it on” and watch it move throughout the day.
