Day 534 - Teaching the Kids to Box
One man's garbage is another man's treasure. This adage is not only applicable to hobos, but also to toddlers. Today, Lisa was cleaning up around the house and pushed aside an empty diaper box. Before you know it, Andrew made a small excitable shriek and jumped inside.
For some reason, the kids really enjoy climbing into things. You'll find Emma and Andrew in storage buckets, wicker baskets, boxes, and marsupials. The funny thing is that they each have their own purpose for getting inside a box. Emma will climb into a box, but take a book or a toy with her so she can actually play with it by herself; it's Emma's alone time. On the other hand, Andrew will climb into something to either destroy it or tip it over. Thank god Andrew only tipped the kangaroo over.
