On Toys

I never understood the purpose of toys before having a baby.

Why buy a baby toys? I wondered. Everyone knows the baby would rather play with the packaging than the toy. But there-in lies the clue as to the purpose of toys. Your baby will not be bored without toys. Your baby will have plenty to play with by virtue of being a baby. Toys serve a more subtle purpose than that.

You eject toys all around your house like chaff. Your baby would be perfectly happy to spend all her time chewing on furniture legs, devouring grocery bags, exploring the contents of your cabinets, practicing her budding engineering skills by disassembling your glasses, and sampling house plants. The toys are simply decoys. And that is why it's important to keep them distributed throughout all the rooms in your house that your baby visits, and not tucked away neat and tidy in a toy chest somewhere.

I am laughing because it is so true. Also you wee one clearly the child of two mudders in substance not just fact.
