What's in Your Vase?

We have one "decorative" item left in our house. It is a large vase with bamboo sticks up by our front door. I'm not sure why we chose this item to leave out when baby-proofing, but we did. For the most part, Owen has left it alone...but in the past few weeks he has been starting to notice it a little more. We here him playing with the sticks and in the past few days he has even brought one of the sticks to us....but we have persevered and decided to leave it out:) Last week, I installed a new app on my phone called Toddler Lock. I was letting Owen "play" with it, and he ran away from me.....and when he came back he didn't have the phone. We could here it though (thanks to the music) so Tony went looking for it.....and he found it in the vase. When he took the sticks out to retrieve it, he found a host of other treasures that Owen had been storing in there as well:)

The Vase

The "treasures" answer the question: 1 dog bone, 1 basting brush, 1 tablespoon, 2 bottle caps, 4 outlet covers (that were not in outlets, but a drawer!), several pieces of paper, and the bamboo sticks of course!

We've decided we need to check the vase when something goes missing:)


  1. That's hilarious! I bet he is going to peek in there today and wonder where all his great treasures went! You know, they do have an excellent memory of knowing exactly where they left things.

  2. sooo funny! The Owen version of hide and seek :)
