Sometimes with kids you just have to say “?!?!… whatever…”
When I was pregnant with David, I had such a picturesque portrait in mind of what it was going to be like to raise a child. His nursery would be Pinterest-worthy, he would be stylin’, his toys would be just as cute as they were educational.
These are the toys that are currently my child’s favorites:
- The prepackaged croutons from Wendy’s.
- That weird spoon thing for serving pasta that we never use.
- Anything that crinkles
- (see #1)
- Plastic water bottles
- Bag of chips
- Lotion bottles. OR…
- Shampoo bottles
- Water bottles
- Diaper rash ointment tubes (when he can get his hands on them).
- The kitty’s tail.
- An old shoebox
- The baby Einstein DVDs.
- Not watching them. Pulling them out of the box. Then having mom put them back in the box. And then pulling them out again. SO fun.
- Baby shoes. Apparently they taste good.
- My cell phoneUntil the screen locks. Then it gets thrown.
- Car keys
- House keys
- Office keys
- Playing tug-of-war with the diaper that I would like to put on him before another “accident” happens.
- He belly-laughs every. time.
As for the stylin’…
Today when I came home from work, David was wearing a white/brown/green t-shirt with pictures of puppies all over it accompanied by blue and black striped shorts and one sock.
And at one point I think David’s room was probably Pinterest-worthly, back when I was a nesting pre-momma. And that was probably really nice to come home to from the hospital. But that was a long time ago and a lot has happened since then…
Sometimes you just have to shake your head and say, “whatever…”
Oh he’s cute and you look great! Sorry you got peed on. lol

I appreciate your honesty in this post! I actually think that the toys you listed sound great!! (although getting peed on… not so great!) lol
Haha, the picture of the pre and post-pee shirt makes me laugh. Look how happy he was to pee on Mama!! 🙂 Without fail – everything we DON’T want them to play with is what they want the most.
I agree! Sometime you do have to say whatever. You are speaking the truth… My 15 month old daughter’s favorite toys are my pens and markers 🙂
This is so my life. Baby recently discovered she can crawl into the room we have kittens in and tries to eat the mom’s food! So sneaky.
Haha oh my gosh he sounds funny and totally adorable.
LOL I never understood children love for keys and things that crinkle. My niece is like obsessed with jingling my keys and loves to try opening the door. Love the picture of your kid in the shoe box. So adorable.
Hahaha! Yep, that’s reality in a nutshell! I can totally relate- my twins are 10 months old and we’re doing the same things. Very well written, I love your sense of humor.
