This is the story about sprinkles.

Untitled

Yes, those sprinkles.  Those sprinkles are M’s favorite ice cream topping.  No matter where we go for ice cream, she always wants sprinkles.

One time, Hubby and M went on a daddy/daughter date to a local ice cream place.  Hubby, always wanting to save an extra buck, decided to put that bottle of sprinkles into his pocket to add to M’s ice cream after ordering it.

The ice cream was ordered, and they went outside to eat their treats.  Hubby pulls the sprinkles out of his pocket and adds them to M’s ice cream.  She was delighted at the idea of “pocket sprinkles” and Hubby was so happy he was able to save a dollar.

Win-win!

Now, whenever we have ice cream at home, M always makes sure to ask for “pocket sprinkles.”

It’s totally a thing for our family now.

Sprinkles will just never be the same.

M loves Youtube. 

I think I’ve mentioned this several times before..

There are videos that use pop songs in the background.

There’s one video of a Play Doh Ice Cream Shoppe review that M loves to watch over and over again.  In the background, the song that is playing is Katy Perry’s “Teenage Dream.”  M has seen this video enough that she knows and sings the song.  When she hears the song, she now calls it the “Play Doh Song.” 

There’s a fan video of Masha & The Bear using Demi Lovato’s “Two World’s Collide.”  She watches THAT video many times that she also knows and sings the song also.  When she hears this song, she now calls it the “Masha Bear Song.”

Sometimes in the car, she wants to hear those songs.  Lucky for her, I’ve owned those songs for a long time. 

“Mimi?  Play Doh Song?”

“Mimi?  Masha Bear Song?”

It’s the cutest thing.  The best part is her singing along…

What pop songs do your toddlers love?

M is so interested in Play Doh that a good number of the videos she watches on Youtube involve playing with a Play Doh set.

Not kidding.

She watches this video where they are reviewing some sort of ice cream making Play Doh toy.  She watches this video where someone is making a rainbow with Play Doh.  She watches this video where they are opening a box of some Play Doh toy and just going over what’s inside and then making stuff with it..

It’s pretty cute how obsessed she seems to be with Play Doh.

I won’t buy her any.

Not that I’m against Play Doh.  I used to love Play Doh as a child.  I remember having so many tubs of it.  I also remember being really careful not to mix my colors together.  So the objects I ended up creating were always just one color.  I didn’t like seeing the colors get all mixed up.

The reason I won’t buy her any is because she sticks toys in her mouth.  Yes, at two years old, she still has a habit of sticking things in her mouth.  The scary thing is, since her mouth has obviously grown, objects fit further into her mouth than before.  So we have been SUPER diligent about the objects that are around her.  There are the obvious play foods and table settings that go into her mouth.  She loves to pretend she’s eating, or having a tea party.  Such a girlie girl.  Then there are toys that should be in her mouth, and that’s why I worry.

She always asks for Play Doh videos, and when she sees actual Play Doh in the stores, she always seems to want it.  I feel really bad about not getting it for her, but it’s for her safety.  I tell her all the time, “I will buy you Play Doh when you no longer put random things in your mouth.”  So far, she hasn’t shown me that she’s matured in this aspect, so.. no Play Doh.

I can’t wait until she is old enough for it all.  I can’t wait to play with the Play Doh with her.  Maybe I’ll show her that it’s ok to mix colors.  Maybe that’s more for me than for her.  I shudder to think of the icky brown color that will result when all the colors eventually get smushed together.. :::shudder:::

Thankful November:
November 13 – I’m thankful that my daughter has the opportunity to discover new toys and new experiences through technology.  I’m thankful that she is blessed with these opportunities to grow and learn and develop.

Hubby gets a nice bowlful of chocolate malted crunch ice cream while we are watching Cupcake Wars on TV.

While deep into the episode, I open my mouth for a spoonful of that ice cream yumminess..

The spoon goes in..

AND IT WAS AN EMPTY SPOONFUL!!

Hubby cracks up laughing..

I grab my laptop..

Hubby:  It’s “Things my husband SAYS..” not “Things my husband DOES..”

(Sidenote:  He’s still laughing…)
