I think it drives my Dad nuts, but one of the coolest thing about parenting Henry so far has been watching how he "innovates" with his toys. Not only is he often not interested in playing with them the "right" way but it clearly just doesn't occur to him that he's doing anything unusual.

Some of his recent experiments involve "tangling" all the Thomas trains in his basketball hoop

and hooking the very pastel and pretty easter eggs on his dinosaurs-- a new passion by the way:

I don't have pictures, but he's also invented "bowling" with his easter eggs which essentially involves throwing his eggs one by one out of his basket using the motion you use to throw a bowling ball. It's tons of fun-- until one is coerced, cajoled and threatened into picking them all up.
