I’m finding it humorous the things James plays with these days. With the plethora of baby toys available, none of them have proved necessary. We all know when a baby is happily entertained you can engage in frivolous activities such as peeing, eating, paying bills, cooking dinner and keeping proper hygiene. That is why this lineup is my new BFF. I’m fat and happy and clean and responsible when these ‘toys’ are around
This is a lid to a candle. It is wonderfully loud to bang on the hardwood floor and fun for the baby. He’ll play with this one for a good 10 minutes.
An old remote with the batteries removed is apparently perfect for teething, or so says James. I’ve made, eaten and done breakfast dishes while he baptized this sucker in his slobber.
A strawberry crate that he loves. I tried to make it better by tightly tying some ribbons (he loves shoelaces) but he is indifferent to the ribbons so far. The crate still works magic.
Oh, miracle empty tissue box, I might have you preserved in gold when your work here is done. James has loved you from the moment he learned to play happily on his stomach and you are still going strong.
A very, very favorite. I pull this out during mass and baby JP is as good and gold and oh so attentive to the homily. It is the wire shaker ball inside of his daddy’s protein bottle. James loooooves it
Good old ice cream scoop and measuring spoons are the answer to the age old “how do you cook dinner with an active 6 month old underfoot?”
Loves him a water bottle, and he is not even particular. He is fine to toy around with Aquafina or Dasani or a Smartwater just the same!
A diaper coupon(cut out from the diaper package and too big for him to choke on). I can’t understand it but he covets this thing so much that I keep it up high and use if for emergency situations. Obviously, I missed the deal but his obsession for this thing is totally worth paying the whole price of his overnight dipes.
Not pictured: Tupperware lids, paper towel rolls, my car keys, the hand towel in the kitchen, sucking on the leg of the coffee table, the door stop….these are a few of his favorite things..
Here is what he doesn’t play with. (Although I should take the ball and gym bag out…he likes those a lot…I just added them for effect)
Save your money, mamas!!
