|New set from his Godfather!|
Now, all of Peter's toys are out of sight except his musical instruments and his puzzles. None of them have been packed, just temporarily stored. Some are in the window seat, many in a play area in the basement, and some in baskets in his room. If he asked us, he could use anything; if he went up or down some stairs from the main floor, he could get most of it on his own.
He was home almost all day today and didn't touch anything other than his music and puzzles.
Instead, he sang songs, asked me to wrestle, showed off for Anne, swept the kitchen floor with me, and made up a new game for us to play with our fingers. He seemed completely content to just be part of the family. It makes me consider what is the best approach to toys whenever we move. Should I keep them all in sight and let him browse or have most of them out of sight but available? Is there benefit to seeking out a particular item versus "toy surfing"? It will be interesting to watch him in the near future and see what toys he actively wants.
