the destruction phase
a couple of months ago, my friend megan came to visit with her son. she mentioned something about the "destruction phase" that kids go through where they like to dump things out and take things apart. but not put them back in or back together. i'm starting to see hints of that with caleb. he used to be fine playing with just one or two toys for a long time. but now, he likes to have lots of things out at the same time. and his new favorite discovery is that the books on his bookshelf can come off! fortunately, he gets so excited about getting 1-2 off the shelf that he leaves the rest alone, but i know this is just the beginning.
