I don't know why this bothers me so much, but why does my DD(5) seem to ONLY want to play with toys made for babies? one year and under crowd, more into the 6 month old toys even than the toddler ones. Yeah, I am a grown up who likes to play with toys sometimes, but this isn't a sometimes, oh that is new to me type of want to play with them. If I let her pick *any* toy from the toy aslie the first one she goes for is always a baby toy. Why!? She is of avg intel, she does play with age appropriate toys at school, but if given the choice she always picks the baby stuff... am I wrong for wanting her to want to play with the toys made for her actual age and skill levels? Should I just shrug and put those under age and skill level toys onto her wish list next time? (and be asked if I gave them the wrong list.) or do I keep buying her toys she doesn't really play with? I am just really starting to allow myself to notice how different she is from her peers in 'little' things. not just can or cannots, but wants and dislikes, and how she is the only little kid I know that doesn't come home from school ready to tell me all about her day. She is the only kid I know who can't tell me *anything* about her day, not even what she ate! It just frustrated me and makes me sad at the same time! Mainly sad because of how much it BOTHERS me! why should these things bother me so much?? She is happy, so why can't I be happy? sorry for the rant, I just... I knew most of you might understand what I mean by this, and even if you don't, you still seem to understand the need to just VENT. Why can't my kid 'get' things.
