Our Infant Toys are a Bust

I’ve made an executive decision to give away all of the infant toys that we have in the house as Benny is interested in everything but his toys.
Here is a list of things that Benny loves:

The remote control

He can find it no matter where I hide it.
It can be on the couch, the side table, even the kitchen table and he will find it!
He learned how to cruise because he wanted to get to the remote as it was taunting him by hanging out innocently on the couch.

My Fake Birkenstocks

Let me begin by saying that this kid gives me a run for my money when it’s time to eat food but as soon as he sees my Birks he starts salivating.
I don’t know if it’s because I am a shoe addict and he caught the addiction in utero or if there is simply something appetizing about the light grey suede straps.
Whatever it is, it drives me up the wall!
He literally follows me around in anticipation for me to take them off for him to go to town with them!

The Ancient Yet Still Existant Hand Held Home Phone

Here is something that you need to know about me.
I have a paralyzing fear of cell phone and microwave radiation.
Although radiation may have nothing to do with either of these things, I have convinced myself that they do and that it is life-threatening (cue raised the eyebrows).
For that reason we still have a home line (cue oohs and ahhs at the ownership of this ancient communication device).
Benny loves the house phone.
He particularly loves to throw it around like a ball.
I can be on the phone and he crawls up to me with the intention of taking it from me.
I am amazed at how well devised his plan of action is at such a young age.
He is actually obsessed with this phone.

So there you have it.
Since Nate is a toddler and Benny was born with a remote control/shoe/home phone fetish our infant toys are now obsolete.

Any takers?

  1. Brings back memories of when my kids were little. I tried so hard to get the right toy for this development milestone and the right toy for that fine motor skill…and then when I soon realized and certainly with my second one….throw all that out the window and they will play with whatever is in front of them….and they learn different and more important skills from that – I don’t have to always be entertained – I can make my own fun!!!

  2. It’s so true. Nate used to be obsessed with baby wipes and the bag that they are in. My friends were always talking about their children’s stacking abilities while I just sat around wondering why my kid has an obsession for wipes! Suffices to say, he turned out just fine!
