Head, Meet Oven

Here’s a new option to add to the list of games to play with your almost one year-old.





Nate: AAH! AAH!

Sage: AAH! AAH!







Repeat infinitely while mommy tries to do taxes.

Good times.

  1. You have more patience than me. I could never do my own taxes. I’d hang myself from the rafters first.Sounds like those two had fun, however. 🙂 BTW, I’m not attending BlogHer Biz, but I’m going to be in NYC during that time. Any good New Yorker suggestions you can send my way? Like how not to get mugged or kidnapped (my mother swears this will happen to me while I’m there. Good God I hope not.)

  2. Hey! My baby (16 mos) and her daddy play that game too. It’s so irritating, but adorable at the same time.

  3. I know.I keep staring at the Turbo Tax box and hearing my kids argue in the background.I just don’t think I can tackle that today, maybe I’ll put my own head in the oven! 🙂

  4. Oh god. I’d be all, “TAKE THAT OUTSIDE!” I don’t care if it’s freezing out. Either that, or retreat to a coffee shop with the computer, if it’s portable.

  5. Oh, I totally play this game with the Pumpkin! Usually while we’re eating dinner, much to my husbands dismay. Hey, whatever keeps the 1 year old happy!

  6. We play a variant.Me: Say “Hi Daddy!”Her: DADADADADADAMe: Say “Hi Daddy!”Her: DADADADADADAD!!!!!She’s going to say it, even if I have to drive her mom crazy to do it.

  7. How weird: this script plays out in our house as well, but with three boys, the dialogue contains an extra third line and occasional non-verbal forms of violence to the other actors.

  8. This happens with the dad and the four-year-old way too often. I usually want to put them out in the snow.

  9. Is that their reaction to taxes being done two weeks before the deadline? and if so… did you join them shortly after writing this?Just kidding.

  10. I’ve played that game. But it usually happens in the car and it’s usually initiated by a cranky toddler. Then I try to yell louder than him and it usually surprises him into silence.

  11. I can totally see Nate playing that game. Me and “D” play a similar game called “what you talking about?”. It goes like this. With each round your voice must become more exasperated and incredulous.D: (says something unintelligible)Daddy: What you talking about?D: What YOU talking about?Daddy: I’m talking about what you talking about!D: What YOU talking about?Daddy: I’m telling you I’m talking about what YOU’RE talking about! Now what are you talking about?the game can last for hours if you let it.

  12. My kids play that game too! This also made me think I’d better get going with my taxes! Head, meet oven indeed.Also, just wanted to let you know I’ve tagged you on a meme.

  13. haha! i so played this with my almost 2 year old the other day while daddy was washing dishes. it was great fun! we also added the ‘shhhhh’ sign and quiet ‘aahhhhs’ alternating with loud AAAAHHHHHHS! for the ultimate giggles…. i must say, MUCH more fun to participate than witness!!

  14. Glad to know this game appeals to all ages! My 18 month old and three year old seem to wear it out!
