My granddaughter is two. For the past couple of months she has been “fixing” various toys. She uses her spatula or spoons to “work” on her cars, baby stroller, doll bed, etc. Wednesday evening I bought her a toy tool kit. She was ecstatic. She opened it and grabbed the hammer, then the screwdriver, calling each by name. How does she know what a screwdriver is? In any case, her tool set is the only toy she played with yesterday and was the first thing she grabbed when she came in the door this morning. Maybe she will be an engineer. Whatever makes her happy.
When I was two, I wasn’t even allowed to have a spatula.
I hope I’m around to hear what she’s doing when she’s nine or ten.
