my little dough boy

Keeping Malcolm occupied isn't (usually) all that difficult. He's so easygoing that even tired, everyday toys can be turned into hours of fun (if you play your cards right).

Even so, the introduction of a new toy can add a bit of fun for both of us.

With Pearl being at the stage where all she wants to do is eat and sleep in two hour increments, we are more or less trapped at home ... So, today, I was excited to pull out the bucket of "Play Doh" that Malcolm received as a Christmas gift.

Needless to say, he loved it.

Tee-shirt: Mimo & Co (thrifted for $0.50)
Long sleeved tee-shirt: The Children's Place (thrifted for $1.00)
Sweatpants: Jumping Beans (thrifted for $1.50)
Socks: Old Navy (gift)

Although he thought he was making cookies at first (and almost consumed a blob of neon pink dough), he quickly caught on that it wasn't real food.

Ultimately, I'm not sure which I enjoyed more ... Watching him work or hearing him exclaim "No eat!" over and over again!
