Nate’s recently discovered a new emotion: shame.  He’s ashamed when he does something naughty, liking pulling every single one of Daddy’s ties off the tie rack.  When he’s ashamed, I get ridiculously good eye contact as he attempts to hide.  His hiding place?  Well.  Take a look at the picture and see.

Yup.  A mesh garbage can.  Nate thinks it’s great because a) he’s “hidden” and b) he can see me.  Quite brilliant in his book!

After a while, Nate realized that his hiding place of shame is actually really fun.  He’s now embraced it as an upstairs activity.  Whenever he dons his “hat,” we call him Buzz Lightyear.  To infinity and beyond!
