Inside Connor's Mickey Box

Like most (almost!!) 2 year olds, Connor loves Mickey Mouse. When Desiree and Marcus sent Connor a Mickey Mouse lunch box for our Christmas in July gift exchange, the little guy was in clubhouse Heaven. He instantly starting piling toys into the box as quickly as his little hands could go. Since day 1, the lunch box goes everywhere we go. I find it interesting to see what Connor thinks is important enough to make it into the box. So today, I want to share what is inside Connor's Mickey box. 


This weekend's box perfectly sums up Connor. Not only does it include all things he loves but I think it gives a clear picture that he indeed is all boy. 

Elmo and his plane - Connor got this from my Mom in October and it's been within hands reach of him at all times since. He loves Mo and takes him every where we go. 

Cars - simply put, our little guy is a fan of cars. Big or small, he loves to make them "zoom".

Hook - when you ask Connor who is likes Hook or (enter any Jake and the Never Land Pirate character) he will always pick Hook. It doesn't matter that Hook is the "bad guy", he is C's favorite. He even said he wanted to go as Hook for Halloween. 

Gold doubloons - I don't think Connor think he can actually spend them but nonetheless, he likes collecting them along with Chuck E Cheese tokens and real coins. He has quite a collection. 

Eye patch - I find this to be the funniest thing he has to keep in his box since he refuses to wear it. He doesn't like anything on his head or face so an eye patch is out. Maybe it's just in case he comes across someone who needs it, I really don't know. 

Cell phone - because sometimes, you need to call for help. He pushes the buttons, says "hello", "talks" to Daddy and when he hangs up, he says "yeah yeah bye". Cracks me up every time. 

So there you have it. A look inside Connor's Mickey Box. Little ones can be so funny and I think seeing what they consider "important" gives us a peek into the way their minds work.

    The eye patch - bahaha. Who knows, maybe he'll come across some poor pirate who's missing a patch…?

  5. Aw, bless. I love looking at what children consider their "treasures". My niece found a "fossil" on a family walk this weekend and would n't let it out of sight until it was in her treasure box.

    1. And he knows exactly what's in it. You ask him where Hook is and he will say Mickey box.

  12. DAMNIT! I need a Mickey Mouse lunchbox now! How cute! I miss when my boy was a little guy and loved Thomas the Train and Captain Hook. Mickey Mouse Clubhouse wasn't even around then..I don't think it came out until he was 4 or 5:(
