Bits and Books

My toddler is like a squirrel.

I find motley accumulations of items and bits of trash stashed away in unexpected places: a board book and a dirty rag in the kitchen towel drawer; a sippy cup in the bath tub; baby shoes in the kitchen sink.

This must be what it looks like to him: me, bustling about the place, stacking, tucking, and folding meaningless objects about the house.

He hasn't fully moved out of the taking-out into the putting-away stage yet, though.  He still enjoys pulling books off of shelves and tugging the kitchen towel from the oven handle.
"Let me help you with that phone.  I know just where to put it!"
In other news, I picked up this hardcover, color-illustrated volume of Hans Christian Anderson's fairy tales for five dollars at an antique shop, in great condition!

I am looking forward to the day when we can read it together.

I'm also on the lookout for a used, wooden high chair.  Something he can grow into, until he gets big enough to sit at a normal chair at the dinner table.
