Frog Claims a Condo

OOPS! 5MSN Site and I are not communicating well today. For the September 9, 2008 SEW Post go HERE











5 Minutes for Special Needs




This was taken on Christmas day three years ago. Frog was not into presents and a morning full of gift exchanging was almost more than he could take. He especially hated that everyone wanted to watch him open his gifts and wanted him to play with the new toys - toys he had not had a chance to really meet yet. He still did not really play with toys unless they belonged to his sister. Diva got a very large doll house that Christmas. When all the gifts were opened and the paper cleared away, Diva's dad and grandpa put the dollhouse together and placed it in the hall closet (still affectionatly known as "Barbie Land") where it could be shut away when not in use. This was the gift Frog took an interest in -

Understand the gift thing. We go through the same thing. I love this photo, though! Very cute! Hope his sister didn't mind!:)

Frogs' mom said...

Diva thought the whole thing was pretty funny. She didn't start "minding" until he started ripping the hair off of barbie's head - oh those little brothers!

Maddy said...

Yes that would be my boys too. So much better to have something custom made rather than having to squeeze into other places!
Best wishes

That's too cute! What a great pic. Thanks for sharing!

That is so funny! Did he take up permanent residency?

Great shot! It's amazing where kids can get!

Thanks for visiting today!

That's great! It's just his size. My boys torture their sister's barbies, too. It's a universal truth that when barbie lives with boys, there will be some degree of torment. :)

Take care!

ps.. Tagged you on a meme about 'quirks' not sure if you did that one already but would love to read what you have to say.

LOL! That's great! It's amazing how many kids are actually like this with gifts. I know my Little Man has to have some time "alone with his toys" before he's ready to actually sit and play with them. I think this is way better than having a child rip into everything and not appreciate any of it. :)

So funny!! My girls would flip if they had a brother and found him in their doll house. LOL!

Meg said...

Oh my, that's simply precious!! I think I would like a big dollhouse to escape to sometimes!
