why do boys like rocks lol?!

My son is going through this thing where every rock is SO awesome and he is only 15 months. We will be waling and he will stop dead in his tracks and just stare and stare and stare then finally say "awesome" and pick it up and put it in his pocket. If I try to take it out he flips out on me. I have a fireplace decorated with rocks inside now lol.

  • My daughter too! That phase lasted about half a year and then slowly tapered off. Now she only picks up and keeps an unusual rock instead of every single one she sees.
