Who Needs Toys?

By MadelinePetersen |

As I mentioned, Tate isn’t getting much from his parents for Christmas. Between the impending spoiling from the grandparents and the fact that he doesn’t know what Christmas is, we have decided to make the whole event pretty low key. Not to mention, I am a bit worried that we might buy him toys that his attention would pass over entirely.

I have always heard tales of children choosing boxes over toys on Christmas morning, but never thought much of the anecdotes until now. You see, I have a baby who would rather play with household items than his toys almost any day of the week.

It's stretchy, soft, and he can put his arms through it. This headband has provided hours of entertainment.

    My (rubber) watch. The remote. Lonely Planet guide books. Nail clippers (careful). A whisk. Pack of wipes.

    And the real toys mostly sit in the corner.
