"Is that a toy?"

This is one of my most-used lines with my five year old. Today it's been used with:
  • the bathroom plunger
  • the extension tube of the vacuum cleaner
  • a sticky note pad
  • packing peanuts
  • the colander
  • a knitting needle
  • a box of envelopes
From a child's perspective everything is a toy. I appreciate inventiveness (a good thing, if you know Little GUy!), and given a choice between self-entertained kids and mess, I'll opt for creative chaos every time. However, I do like to know where the measuring spoons are. We're working on it.
