Our kids seem to do some funny things, don’t they? Sometimes they imitate us and pretend their toys are real purses or makeup or coffee cups (Toddler likes to drink “kid coffee” out of the mug that holds her watercolor water and paintbrushes).
Sometimes they just do weird things with their own toys. Imaginative, yes – but weird all the same. My toddler has a huge imagination, mixing up what’s happened in real life with books we’ve read and movies we’ve seen … and it shows sometimes in what she does with her toys.
So, I thought it would be fun to chronicle a few instances, just for a little laugh. It surely makes me laugh!
This next one is Baby’s doing. The below photo was taken in her older sister’s room. Now, Toddler generally doesn’t like Baby getting into her toys or possibly disturbing her “set-ups” … but she doesn’t complain when Baby starts rummaging through the dirty laundry bin. (For the record, I bury the dirty underwear.) Therefore, Baby likes to play with clothes, both dirty and clean from Toddler’s dresser. Yikes…. The below photo includes clean underwear only which she was stacking on her arm like a purse or bracelets!
This last set of photos is perhaps my favorite. Thank you, Usborne books for this hilarious flap from your Famous Palaces book. Toddler makes a beeline for that particular flap when we go to read the book – and always has a good laugh and several follow-up questions. As always, poop is a big hit with toddlers!
My girls are pretty good at giving me a laugh! What about you – do you have any gems of your own to add to this list?
