At three-and-a-half, I expect you're starting to catch on to what makes an appropriate play thing, and what does not. However, I know you're developing brain is rapidly processing information, and it can be easy to forget. Based on the past week, let's do a quick review:
- Salt shakers
- Your younger brother's left nostril
- A power drill
- Anything with the word "Panasonic" on the front of it
- The cat keyboard your uncle thought was a good idea for your first Christmas, but failed to disclose plays a meowing version of "La Cucaracha"
- Cotton balls (so long as they don't go anywhere near that nostril)
- The plastic hammer that came in your toy Home Depot kit
- Dried, dyed pasta*
- Empty toilet or paper towel rolls
- Washable markers or paint*
- Any of the hundreds of dollars worth of toys Playskool tricked us into believing would hold your attention and stimulate you
It's okay. Really. We'll try again next week. But if you could just point me in the direction of the Magic Eraser you absconded with, I'd be ever so grateful.
