I think Tom may be getting bored with his play mat. And really, it is totally boring. Tons of bright colors? Lots of toys that make noise hanging in your face? A multi-colored blinking star? That also plays loud music? And then your mom puts other toys on the mat so you can grab them? Boooorrrrinnng.
Can I help it that my child hates the crib but loves the floor? He’s a future camper. It’s in his genes. He’s probably dreaming about s’mores.
