Help! Our house is being taken over by toddler toys, like talking teapots and color splashed furniture!
Believe me, I am not complaining. It's all part of the privilege of being a "Gammie."
When my eyes meet my toddler granddaughter's, my heart melts like a stick of butter in a pan on the lighted stove.
But toy accumulation is another story.
The kitchen is suddenly smaller with her own table and chair, high chair, two plastic dolly houses and a small army of dollhouse family members plus Fisher Price "little people."
Tiger (of Winnie the Pooh fame) jumps on a table in the living room and two sleeping dollies occupy a nearby doll crib.
Then there's a pack-and-play for nap time, a butterfly puzzle, a ton of story books, and on and on.
My mirrors have hand and lip prints all over them, since the princess loves to kiss her image!
She's a kicker.
A huge portion of the paraphernalia was given to me by a friend whose granddaughter is a lot older.
Most of it was yard sale and thrift store purchases to begin with.
Oh boy. "Ain't" life with toddler visitors grand?
