Overheard: Parenting Tactics

Posted on: October 12, 2009

The Scene: watching the Poptart laying on the floor playing with the frame of her bouncy chair (the cover was being washed)

Darren: She’s just absolutely fascinated with that. Who knew?
Me: Well, it’ll be like toys she’ll get: she’ll be more interested in the box than the toy.
Darren: You know what that means? We can take toys she already has and make them disappear a couple of weeks in advance, rewrap them and give them to her. It’ll be like all brand new toys.
Me: She won’t always have the memory of a goldfish. Eventually she’ll be too smart for that kind of thing.
Darren: Yeah, but until then, any toy is fair game! Regifting at its finest!

I bet you that you can keep this up for longer than you think. Even at 4 I might be able to convince my daughter that, “Hey, look, it’s just like that one that you used to have, but lost!” I might feel a little bad about it, but I could probably pull it off in a pinch. 😉
