A while ago I had a post titled He carries everything EVERYWHERE! Well It’s still happening only this time little man has eased up on the big toys and stuffed animals. Now he’s more drawn to small cars, ads, and coupons.
If he sees something he likes whether it’s a toy, cartoon character or food product, he keeps the paper and takes it everywhere. I find them all over the house especially near his play area and bed.
Just see the picture above, his newest addition is this coupon that pictures cereal. He’s been carrying it around for about 3 days now. I take it from him before bed. He wakes up the next morning looking for it. He usually carries the darn papers or coupons around until they fall apart or i get them trashed.
You would think he’s never been given anything special the way he clings to these things. The good side is he’s a very easy child to please .
I know i was an ad hoarder as a kid too. My mom still talks about how she would find all of Sunday specials in my room when i was a kid.
But I question if this is normal behavior? Or is Little man just being a kid like i was?
