Jake enjoys playing upstairs, especially rummaging through a box of my old nik-naks while sitting on our bed. There’s a talking plastic ET figure that freaks him out, yet fascinates him. He won’t touch it, but keeps asking me to lift each of ET’s arms which makes him say different phrases. If you lift his head and push it down, his chest lights up red. Today, he accidentally touched ET and it spoke. Jake screamed in terror and wanted to be cuddled and taken out of the room. There isn’t much he’s scared of, he doesn’t even mind the dark.
