31 Days of Play! Mischievous Play
When things get a little too quiet I know that my little Beansprout is up to something . . . This morning, in the middle of washing my hair, that feeling came over me, and as I peaked out of the shower, I found him squeezing his toothpaste into the sink! I'll pause here to say how I love that he realizes he's doing something mischievous -- I know this because though he protests when I tell him he needs to hand over the toothpaste, the protest is half-hearted. Though I now realize why we seem to have run out of two tubes already, I have to laugh at the experimentation of this play! I figure this might be how it goes in his head . . .
#1) get more toothpaste (it tastes so good!)
#2) oh! can I squeeze the paste out myself?
#3) I CAN squeeze it out myself - let's squeeze some in the sink
#4) Well, I can't see it in the sink, but if I reach my hand over, I can FEEL it.
Of course, I am extremely grossed out by the fact that he's eating toothpaste out of the bathroom sink! Such is the mischief of a two-year old!
I'm writing about play for 31 days! You can check out an explanation of the challenge here, where you'll find my other posts, too!
