Batteries not Included

Vincent has a problem.

He can't focus on his toys...

He can't play happily...

He can't be in a good mood...

All because -

Vincent has become fixated on batteries. Yes people, batteries.

It started a few weeks ago, he'd dig in the fridge for the batteries and play with them. I'd reprimand him and put them back only to find him digging around again minutes later. Now he's progressed to locating each and every item in our house that requires batteries and informing me:

"The batteries are dead!"

He's brought me toys, clocks, remotes, watches, and even the phone that wasn't charged. I hear that phrase probably 50 times a day. It's driving me insane. He even runs batteries down on his Thomas trains just to tell me the batteries are dead and to give him another.

I never thought in a million years I'd despise batteries.

oh dear. at least it's a sanitary and useful obsession, right? I mean...it could be like frogs, lizards, house-spiders, or worse yet, snakes instead.
