today the kids decided they wanted to make a tv.
i let them go in the basement and bring up a big box, they also found a small one to make a remote with, but somewhere mid construction the tv they planned turned into a house. and so it began. lined with a pillow, windows eventually cut, colored front to back with markers and crayons and chalk. lots of x's and o's and "love" written on it. of course i coined it the love shack. i should have cued up some B~52's for them so they could be in on my joke, but i forgot...
then 1 box was just not big enough for this neighborhood so a second big box came up from the basement and casey made it her "shed".
it was fun and it really occupied them for a good hour just in coloring them.
and now we have them to play with til the sides give out...
silly fakers pretending to sleep in their box.
and if you have not read the children's book, Little Boy, you should.
all about a little boy and his big cardboard box. one i love to read and re-read to them.
forts are fun.
i wish i had a box big enough for me.
but i would not pretend nap in mine. oh no, i would NAP. ;)
