This is not an easy time .. now I am not talking about the full blown toddler tantrums (and but the way the teen tantrum by far outweigh the toddler version)
I am talking about the obsessions …
We have had some rather interesting obsession from the hoover to washing machine and also some Peppa Pig chucked in for good measure but Joshua’s old obsession were merely a passing ‘like’ in comparison to this newest one.
And I am shattered, shattered of hearing about the spongy fella and his shoe wearing snail sidekick ….. yep that’s right if you have not seen these programmes I can confirm that the snail ‘Gary’ not only wears shoes but meows like a cat … no really!
It is the first thing he utters once both eyes are open in the morning and its the last thing he speaks about after the bedtime story has been read and he has his 3 stuffed friends (SpongeBob, Patrick and Gary) …. yep he sleeps with them too!
As far as obsession go this one is seriously beginning to slowly drive me to distraction. I have now banned SpongeBob on TV to a restricted to 2 episodes a day … although I have to watch out on Daddy since he loves SpongeBob too it could run into all day marathons the moment my back is turned!
Is is just me that doesn’t see what the obsession is with the yellow sponge that lives in a pineapple, krabby patties and a snail that thinks it’s a cat?
I am hoping that this too is a strange toddler obsession that will be a passing phase too … I just hope it passes quickly.
Do your toddlers/Children have any strange obsessions?
