Peyton’s Christmas

by Greg Mayer

For Christmas, Peyton got a laser tower– a device that shines a randomly moving laser off a mirror. Peyton has long enjoyed playing with a laser mouse (hand held device, in the shape of a mouse). In fact, she seeks us out to play with it at about 8 PM each day, which is our regular time to play with the mouse. She let’s us know it’s time to play by assuming a crouched, hunting, stance in the living room, waiting like that till we get the laser mouse. Here’s her first reaction to the new laser tower.

She seems to be interested not just in the light, but in the device itself. She also notices that the device produces more than a single reflection, and she pays attention to the fainter reflection as well.

Here she is playing laser mouse.

Peyton’s holiday message to the world: “Meow.”

    Orson agrees: red dot is best dot, even if it can’t be caught.
