No toys needed!


We spend so much time and money getting fancy toys for kids, checking specifications, ensuring high quality, etc. But I have come to realize that there is just so much around us, at home, in the garden or yard that works much better in developing curiosity, allowing for experimentation and providing hours of endless fun for my toddler boys. I am posting a video of a recent holiday where the boys discovered the garden hose! In spite of the cool morning weather and icy cold water, the two had a blast! And we got the lawn watered too!

Mom - a word that defines me... I smell of oats, johnson's and home baked cookies I am pink, purple, green and orange and so is the floor my kids color on. Flour on my clothes and a brush in my pocket, my glasses bent out of shape and smudged with tiny fingerprints. I can't remember the date but i know almost 40 pictures books by heart. I wake up humming 'wheels on the bus'and i talk with my fingers and eyes and mouth. My bag carries band aids, napkins, wipes, crayons, papers, candy and sometimes my wallet. I know all the parks and very few of the restaurants in my neighborhood. Most of my shopping is diapers, books and paints My phd certificate lies in a roll, the frame now contains an abstract work of art by two year olds and i am prouder of that piece of paper. mom - a word that defines me!

  1. So true! My friend’s li’l one would love playing with the packaging and cartons more than he would with the actual contents! It was a constant source of amusement and wonder for everyone 🙂
