Last week, I noticed Will seemed to be talking to "himself" more often. I also noticed that these conversations seemed a bit one-sided, as if there was someone else in the room with them.
Turns out, there "is".
Allow me to introduce Skittle (I asked him and he doesn't need a blog pseudonym).
After careful investigation, we have thus far concluded that Skittle is:
1) 2 years old (He was 1 year old, but he shares a birthday with Will, so he is now 2.)
2) A boy.
3) Residing in the toy room.
4) Not a fan of cereal - he prefers hot dogs (with ketchup!) for breakfast.
5) Apparently responsible for an entire roll of toilet paper being unrolled while Will was innocently using the bathroom.
So far, Skittle is mostly well-behaved and we are enjoying his antics with Will. It is amazing what their minds come up with.
