Have you read the Pete the Cat books? They are a real favorite of ours around here (in fact, when we had our family portraits done for the first time, part of our session was reading a Pete the Cat book together! I'd love to recreate that sometime for one of my clients!). T's new favorite is Pete the Cat Rockin in my School Shoes. Pete is pictured jamming on a guitar throughout the book, and ever since we started reading it, T has been pretending everything is a guitar. A book becomes a guitar, his lovey becomes a guitar, a frying pan...you name it, it's a guitar in our house. I've even been known to craft him lego guitars, which are a real favorite.
One day, I was running out of ideas. You know those days. Every button has been pushed, nothing entertains the rugrat for more than 2 minutes...and I took one of our diaper boxes and cut out a guitar shape. Boom. I felt like supermom. And now this guitar is pretty ratty looking and tired, he's colored on it and bent it, but it's still a favorite and I don't know that I'll ever be able to part with it!
