My youngest Gus is not really fond of the typical toys. In fact I cannot remember the last time he played with a “real” toy all on his own. Usually we have to “play” with it first so that it looks fun for him 😆
So what are his favorite things to play with???
Shoes – I know gross, I don’t let him play with them – but when he gets a hold of one he is a happy camper 🙂
Paper – Another thing we don’t let him have……
Spoons – This one we let him have 😉
String – Yes I know it can be dangerous, we watch him carefully with this. He likes to “throw” the string.
The remote – The working real remote, not the broken one with no batteries 😕
Mickey’s dog tags – Our well-behaved puggle will let Gus play with his tags.
Mommy’s hair – Ouch, Gus loves to fiddle with my hair while breastfeeding
The wipees box – when changing his diaper he lunges for the wipes
I’m sure there are a few more non-toys that he enjoys……
So why do I even bother keeping the toys, buying the toys & storing the toys? (Actually I haven’t bought many new toys for Gus.) I suppose I am hanging on to the toys for sentimental reasons since all of the other kiddos played with them. Sniff……
