Simple Pleasures

You know how people are always saying that kids don't need toys, just to hand them a cardboard box or something like that? Well, I think that might actually be true. If you give Topher a plastic Walmart sack, he's happy for at least 10 straight minutes (supervised, of course, so he doesn't suffocate.) He's also equally entertained with one of my shoes, an empty paper towel tube, a roll of painter's tape, a page from the newspaper, or a water bottle. He's kind of like a puppy, really.
Anyway, here he is enjoying a simple water bottle:
The best thing about this video is how much Topher loves watching it (I need to take a video of that.) Whenever we play it for him on the computer, he smiles and laughs. I'm not sure if he really understands that he's looking at himself, but I think he might. He loves looking in the mirror and touching his reflection, so I think he's figuring it all out.
A family came to look at our house this morning and they were here for almost an hour, and there is another couple coming to see it tonight. At least we're getting plenty of traffic through here despite the crummy market. We're taking that as a good sign and keeping our fingers crossed.

  1. It's so true, the things that aren't technically "child safe" are definitely the most LOVED. I think we parents mainly buy the toys because WE like them!
