is evie the only one, or does your kid love pushing buttons too? if there's a remote (or anything with buttons) around, this girl will sniff it out and keep a strong hold on it until her next meal, when she needs free hands to feed herself.
the type of remote doesn't matter. she's satisfied with a tv remote (i remove the batteries first; learned that the hard way), wii remote, overhead fan remote—you name it. there's just something about pushing buttons that really does it for her. oh, and if a light turns on when a button is pushed (like that little red one on the comcast remote)? she's in heaven.
the battery-free tv remote goes many, many places with us these days. (exhibit a: top middle photo.)
do you ever pack an entire diaper bag of toys and then notice your tot is most interested in your wallet, keys, crinkly package of baby wipes—and the remote? gah! really (really, really!) don't understand what's better about a remote than all the awesome toys flooding evie's playroom.
but i have to admit, it's pretty fun to watch her little face light up when she pushes those buttons. sometimes when i watch her, i wish our adult lives, too, were simple enough that we could rejoice over buttons: no worries, no fears. just innocence and happiness to the very core.
^^forget about this really educational toy you spent a fortune on, mama. if there's no remote around, i'll just find an iphone to play with. thanks!^^
(we try not to let evie play with our phones, but sometimes there's one laying around and she snatches it up while we blink.)
