Besides his resemblance to Little Critter, I recently noticed my Lil' Tzaddik's resemblance to the blonde-haired Emily, the main character of the children's book "Emily's Balloon".
Forget about toys, my Lil' Tzaddik, like Emily, is only happy when he has a balloon in his hand. My wife jokes that we may someday have to send him to Balloon Adicts Anonymous (BAA). A few week's ago as my wife was putting him back into the car seat he started shouting, "bln, bloon, BLOON!"
My wife looked around the parking but could not see another balloon anywhere. She then asked him where it was. He pointed across the mall parking lot in the direction of Trader Joe's which is located over a block away from the mall. Apparently he had memorized its location since he gets a helium balloons each time he goes. After my wife put him in the mini van she asked him where he wanted to go. He immediately pointed in the direction of Trader Joe's and then directed her to take a left turn here, a right turn there, until they ended up in the parking lot of Trader Joe's.
