He will pretend to be hammering and say things like, "I'm gonna fix it mamma, I'm just Damming.....Oh Dam it" Its so hard not to laugh and you have to be careful when your child says something that is controversial not to have a certain reaction because they may want to repeat what they are saying due to how you react. Don't laugh. Sometimes pretending you didn't hear it works better and they carry on never saying what they said again.
Since the start of our home renovations, we've been finding several of my husband's tools in the playroom from J myster snatching them. So after our date last night we promised we'd bring J myster back a toy. We brought him back a super hero cape (I no longer have to tuck his blanket into the back of his shirt during his super hero episodes) and we bought him a tool box. He can now hammer and bang on things right along side daddy with his own play tool box full of tools.
It was a great investment as he hasn't played with anything else today, and he's learned to play with it on the couch so that Baby B doesn't get his new toys.
So he gets to play with his screw drivers and nails and bolts and of course his little dammer....aka hammer.
