Kids Play: “You When You Were a Baby”, Part 2

My daughter recently decided that a small stuffed raccoon is my husband when he was a baby. Well, now she’s built a potato head to represent me when I was a baby.

I apparently had no nose when I was a baby. I also had Angelina Jolie lips.

I think perhaps Baby Me was inspired by Potato Head Mommy Me. I constantly hear about how “‘Toy Story 3′ has you in it, Mommy, when you were a Potato Head”. We have a Mommy Potato Head Me. Here she is with Baby Me. You can see the resemblance in a way that makes much more sense than Raccon Baby Daddy.

Kids Play: Santa

Even though we are Jewish, Santa comes to our house. Lily has a lot of thoughts about Santa, though most of them came from school already. Santa brought her sister a Santa Mr. Potato Head and Lily has a lot of thoughts about this. According to her, Santa wears a red hat with a white ball on top and shaving cream all over his face.

Also, “Santa Mr. Potato Head was NOT in ‘Toy Story 3′. He’s new. He’s NOT a Toy Story friend.” Yet at least five other potato head figures are allegedly Toy Story friends. Santa is excluded for some reason. Who knows.

Kids Play: Daddy Potato Head

After my daughter Lily saw Toy Story 3, she insisted that we needed a “Mommy Mr. Potato Head”. Once Mommy Mr. Potato Head joined our household, she kept asking where “Daddy, Baby Rose, Lumpy Puppy and Lily” Potato Head were.

We’ve ALWAYS had a MISTER Potato Head, but she insisted that Mr. Potato Head was NOT Daddy. He’s MISTER. So after months of her asking us for “Daddy, Baby, Puppy and Lily Potato Head” multiple times a day, we got the hint and for her birthday we got her a Potato Head family of four as well as a dog Potato Head.

Even though we now have four regular-sized Potato Heads, any of which could be Daddy, Lily insists that the GIANT Potato Head container the family of four came packaged in is Daddy. Naturally. I mean, he’s totally to scale.

Meet our Potato Head family. Front row: Mr. Potato Head, Lumpy Potato Head, Lily Potato Head; Back row: Mommy Mister Potato Head, Daddy Potato Head and Rose Potato Head.

Lily keeps lining them up like that and saying “Here’s our family! Mommy, Daddy, Rose, Lily, Lumpy and Mr. Potato Head.”

Apparently Mr. Potato Head is now a member of our family. I wish someone had told me!

Kids Play: Photo Session

How you know you’ve been taking too many pictures of the things your kid does with her toys:

Yesterday, 3-year-old A ceremoniously piled all of her “Toy Story Friends” (mostly Mr. Potato Heads and their pieces) onto an armchair. Once they were all there, she declared that she needed to take a picture. She took out her toy camera and took several “pictures” of the mess.

I wonder where she got this idea, and yet here you see I had to take a picture of her taking a picture of what she did to her toys. Makes me wonder what kind of behaviors I’ll be creating with all this photo taking!
