Wooden Spoons & Tupperware

Cooper is into his screaming again. He seems to be screaming pretty much nonstop the past two days. Most likely due to his cold. Who knows? I was trying to find things to distract him. I gave him some tupperware, a plastic spatula, and a wooden mixing spoon. He loved playing with these things. He enjoyed banging them all together and just waving them in the air. He also enjoyed putting each item in his mouth and chewing on it. Funny thing is, he had all his normal baby toys around him and he only reached for the kitchen items. I could make a lot of money packaging kitchen items and selling them at a toy store! Cooper has all these really colorful, fun toys but instead he reaches for the plastic lid to the tupperware. Cracks me up. Hey, as long as he’s happy that is all that matters.

    Funny how that works! Drew likes to open the kitchen cabinets so I have a “tupperware” cabinet and he can spend so much time playing.

    That is a good idea. Once Cooper can move around on his own, I am def. going to have a tupperware cabinet for him to play in. Hope Drew starts to feel better soon.

    wait until he can move around…then a plain old box is like gold! I don’t bother buying new toys for home. I love to give Ocean boxes, empty paper towel rolls, tupperware containers, ladels, etc. etc. It lasts soo much longer. 🙂

    Aubrey, I agree. What’s the point in buying all these really expensive toys if the normal every day house hold items work better! Hope Ocean is doing better and that tooth has finally popped through!

    LOL YES, I totally relate! Lee is so enthralled with our tupperware lids and the wooden spoons, that I recently bought some new wooden spoons specifically for him! ha ha
