What’s in your microwave?

My toddler LOVES little compartments and boxes and things with doors or drawers.

He loves to put little treasures in little ‘treasure chests’.

We have a 10 gallon glass brewing jug set up in our bedroom for our spare change.  We usually find things that are not money in it.

I don’t know how many ‘magic wands’ he has deposited with the quarters and dimes.  There was a ton of Legos, the key to his bank my dad made him, bouncy balls, instruction manuals, flyers from the mail, marbles, and the list goes on.

It is always interesting to see what he comes up with sometimes.  Tonight was no exception.

While I was cooking dinner he kept running into the living room and back into the kitchen.  He would open the microwave and close it again.

I didn’t think anything of it, because he is always opening and closing it ever since he could reach the button (it is on a low counter).  Usually he would tell me dinner was ready, or that he is cooking dinner too.

Tonight after dinner Tyler asked me where a toy is for Baby Sid, to which Ian jumped up and said “oh, hold onasecond. I get it” and ran off into the kitchen.

I followed him and found this

At least he didn’t turn it on!


Happy findings
