As a parent, I can totally relate to a recent post by Carrie Underwood on Instagram. She posted a picture of her son Isaiah with a new toy that he had been playing with for the past two days.

Carrie captioned the picture with this: "This is what my kid has been playing with for the past 2 days. Yes, it’s a potato. Yes, he has other real toys. Yes, I know it’s weird.”

When my kids were smaller they loved boxes. Any size box. If they couldn't fit inside it they would put stuff in it or just open and close it over and over.

My daughter Shaylee had a pet potato named Bob, to which she glued googly eyes. I eventually had to throw Bob away (he was starting to rot).

What weird thing did your child love to play with?
