This morning I was trying to get a few things cleaned around the house. I have had big case of paper towels sitting in the toy room for over a week waiting to be put away so I decided to get Josiah to help me. I showed him the spot in the closest to place them and he went to work while I finished sweeping the carpets. As I was finishing up I found him pulling the rolls from the closest and using them to build. Brilliant! The cardboard stacking blocks are ridiculously expensive and only serve one purpose. Paper towels stack and can also be used to for soaking and wiping purposes. J was having so much fun that he forgot to run to the bathroom. All of the pictures I took show proof of our accident. I am sure J will love these photos come high school graduation time! :-)
We were listening to music and J wanted to drum so he set up a drum set. Again what could be a better toy than those wonderful paper towel rolls! J put together a 10 "drum" set and was thrilled with himself. I gave him a couple of wooden spoons to use as drum sticks. We cranked up the music and had a short jam session. These are the moments that I am learning to cherish. (Don't worry. Lunch time was followed up by an epic nap time meltdown so J is a normal two year old!)
|J was pretty thrilled with the new set up!|
|Drum, drum, drum!|
|M was generally thrilled with so much entertainment!|
PS Those paper towels that have been out for a week or longer are still not put away. Oh well I guess they will be put away at some point.
