It's like Sisyphus, but with plastic chairs

Sometimes Ben gets into these frenzies, where he becomes super concentrated on one weird task. Like the pajama rituals. Well, this weekend he became fixated on his plastic table and chair set. He was obsessed with putting all three chairs on the table, even though it was impossible. So he'd stack two, but then the third one would inevitably push another one off the table, so it began all over again. Heath and I watched him do it for at least 20 minutes and he didn't even seem to notice we were there. He was too focused on the goal.

  1. Well, they say the definition of "toddler" is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result. ;)

    Oh and what is that thing next to the bunk bed? It looks like a character from an old Doctor Who episode.
