Really. Why buy toys when your 1 year old is perfectly content with pulling things out of the cupboard. Bo HATES it when Meg gets into the pans. He's convinced she's going to break something. That, and it's LOUD. Me? Hey, they're pans, they can't break, and if it keeps her busy, happy, and lets me write a post on my blog and catch up on others, why not? My only fear is that she just might break our rice cooker.
