Looking for ways to entertain your toddler? Here's a fun idea: Give your kid an impossible task. Poor little Michael has been given the Sisyphean feat of closing the kitchen cabinet doors. Easy enough ... except that those doors won't stay shut. It's like the LOL version of "When God closes a door, He opens a window." When Michael closes a cabinet door, another one opens. Over and over and over again. And the little guy is so sweet and patient about it! You have to see this video.
Aww, he just looks at his parents like, "Um, it's not working!" Welcome to life, little boy. WELCOME TO LIFE. Haha. On one hand, I'm amazed he kept it up for so long. But then I remembered how much toddlers love repetitive activities. So maybe this really did entertain him? Anyway, I'm so glad he finally got those darn cabinet doors closed. Sheesh! Now he can go on with his life with a sense of closure.

P.S., final score was Kitchen Cabinets: 15, Michael 2. But those last two scores pretty much shut it down.
Do you ever make your toddler do silly tasks like this?
