Ava's Obsessions

Do all kids have obsessions or just Ava? Ava has always dove feverishly into her passions. So far Scarlett loves lots of things but doesn't obsess about any one thing.  I am wondering if all kids go through these crazy die hard phases?

A re-cap of Ava's Obsessions

2 years old - Diego, she had the sheets, blankets, and all the toys.

3 years old - Horses, we had a very impressive collection of Breyer horses.

4  years old - Pokemon, she is still into these little creatures and has an impressive collection.

5 years old - Bakugan, there is drawer full of broken old Bakugan, they dont work after a while.

6  years old - Owls and Birds, sparked be reading the Guardians of Ga'hoole books. Excellent series by the way!

I wonder what it will be next year?

If you have a minute, share your kids obsessions, curious if they all go through this stuff...

  5. My kids all went through their obessions at those ages..that kind of went away as they got older. My youngest is 5 and his thing is everythign Lego right now :)
    Thanks for following me, I'm now following you as well!

  6. Toy Story and dragons are ALL that my sons care about. Somehow ANYTHING we do relates back to one of these 2 topics. It's sort of interesting to watch their interests change, but a little sad, too. I'm sort of attached to Woody and Buzz! :)

  7. My daughter is only 18 months so her obsessions don't last as long but right now she is obsessed with bubbles and water! Every time she sees a sink, its "bubbles." I hope she becomes obsessed with putting away her toys next. ;) New follower from MBC.
