It's Raining Toys

It's Raining Toys
We can not keep the playroom clean these days because toys seem to drop from the sky on Sweet Pea's head.  It is her new party trick.  She walks/crawls/shimmies/dances over to a bin of toys and then dumps it on her head.  The best is when she picks up a bin of toys that is clearly too heavy for her because when she lifts it above her head to dump in out it propels her backwards so that after the toys rain down on her head she falls back and lands with her head in the bin.

Would You Like Fries With That?
Little Man and Peanut like to play "drive thru" and my favorite part is that they think that in addition to paying me money for the milkshake or fries they are obligated to give me kisses with each purchase.  They roll by with their money and kisses requesting everything from french fries to soup.  I also enjoy a game I can play with them that doesn't involve bad guys or monsters.

No Guns Allowed
We don't allow toy guns or swords in the house.  The sword rule is just for all of our protection because a 4 year old and a 2 year old wielding anything resembling a sword could result in lots of trouble and broken things.  The gun rule is now up for debate because as all little boys can, Little Man can turn his bristle blocks, shoe or a perfectly shaped stick into a gun.  So I am not sure that it is worth the effort.  Boys will be boys and I am thinking it might be more important to teach him not to point his gun (pretend or otherwise) at people and that we only shoot the pretend bad guys.  This decision is still up for debate so for now the bristle block gun will have to do.
