Another Love Story... Gray and the Broom

Grayson has decided that the broom is the best toy in the house (besides his elephant - that's still #1). I had to take pictures to document his fascination. He RUNS when he hears me open the cupboard where we keep it, and if I close the door without giving him the broom, he FREAKS out!! It's obviously too big for him to carry everywhere with him, but he does his darndest to carry it where he can. He loves to sweep his toys around the floor with it. He also sometimes uses it like a bo staff -- that thing can be a weapon! He's whacked me good a few times!! I keep worrying that he's going to hit my guitar or the grandfather clock with it -- hasn't yet, but it's bound to happen. So anyone know where I can get a short-handled broom? I've looked a few places, and the only ones I've found are like $20 -- no thank you! Anyway, here are some of the funny pics!










This is what happened when I tried to swap the broom for the little hand-sweeper thingy. I thought they'd be close enough that he wouldn't care. Nope.

Its so funny what kids pick up on and what they find as a "friend" or something they love. Ruby was obsessed over Hudson hammer at that age. She took it everywhere. Hopefully you can pry it out of his hands to run errands.

Maybe just get a broom with a wooden handle and then shop off the stick and sand the top so its not rough? The broom part would be too big for the stick, but then he would still have a lot of broom to push toys around with :)
