Whenever presented with a cardboard box, both find an unexplainable desire to fit themselves into the box, regardless of how big the box actually is.

“Oh mummy’s on the computer. Better go sit on her keyboard”
“That newspaper that daddy is reading looks like a comfy spot to rest.”
“Daddy look really tired resting on the bed, I shall go massage his face with my butt.”

To bath both the cats and the children( not at the same time, duh.) do the following steps:
1) stand at the bathroom door with the bathing towel.
2) proceed to call them between 745 to 927 times.
3) Chase, grab and drag to the bathroom.

Toys will be played ‘creatively’. Or will be invisible to them and not played at all.

Does your child does the same?
