Kingwold vacation, part 7

The Good Doctor is very competitive. Not competitive enough to want to do the Castaway Cay 5K with me on a hot Bahamian morning (something about knees and age and all that) but competitive enough to enjoy watching his kids compete.

So when he heard them announce Jack Jack's Incredible Diaper Dash, he was all in. Well, he was all ready to put Victor all in. Never mind that the child can't see the Jack Jack motivational doll at the other end of the race mat. Never mind that the child is hungry and ready for lunch. He was going to enter said child and said child was going to win if he had anything to do with it.

Unfortunately, said child had other ideas. That bottle that the Good Doctor thought he could shake to get the baby to crawl, just made Victor plant himself on the spot and have a good ol' fashioned temper tantrum at that mean daddy who wouldn't just give him the bottle.

At that point, Mommy's voice wasn't going to work, either.

Thankfully he wasn't the only baby who didn't budge.

And because Disney is all American, every baby got a participation prize.

The Good Doctor feels much better now.

Besides, Victor was probably just making a conscious decision not to participate because he was trying so hard to learn to walk, not crawl. And since he did take that long-awaited first step last night, all is forgiven.
