It Just Keeps On Giving...

Because I am lazy and didn't feel like dragging it down to the basement Because the boys begged me to leave it, we've had the Robot Bean Bag Toss in our living room ever since the party last weekend (wait...that was two weekends ago, oops!).
It's provided a great place to hide the clean laundry that didn't get folded when Bren's friend came over on Friday night entertainment for the boys. It's been a bean bag toss, pirate ship, robot head quarters, and even a super secret hiding place for a game of hide and seek. It was base for a lego battle, a step stool for Ethan to climb on, and a library where Brennan stored some books.
It's funny how much joy and pleasure a simple box with (or without) a few holes cut into it can provide! I am not sure that I want to take it down to the basement, even though I know the boys will have fun with it down there...I still need a place to throw the random toys lying around tonight when our dinner guests come over I love watching the boys be so creative and would miss that if it were all the way in the dungeon playroom/basement.

2 Words to brighten my day:

You crack me up!

Sounds like I need to get Peyton {or myself} a box to hide in!

Simple toys are the best! Let the imagination run free, and the box as a place to hide laundry is a very good one, too.
