Today was a momentous day. Today we received, what will hopefully be, Sam’s last shipment of diapers. Wahoo! We plan to give potty training a go once Christmas is past. However, that wasn’t the most exciting part of the day. The exciting part was that those diapers came in a great big box! What toddler boy doesn’t love having a huge box in his front room?
So, of course, I put the boys in the box to let them play around. Sam hadn’t yet gotten to the stage in life where he hops in a box and it immediately becomes a racecar/spaceship/secret bunker etc. So when I asked him what it was he looked at me like, “Uhm, a box, duh mom.” So I suggested that maybe it was a boat. That was immediately a hit! He started to pretend he was going to the promised land (yes, he’s watched the Animated Scripture videos a few times :) ). He then told me “Mom! Float. My. Boat!” Which I thought was a pretty hysterical request. He also asked me for a “rower shovel” (more commonly referred to as a paddle, I like hearing how Sam describes things that he doesn’t know the names for!). It’s so much fun to see these little kids’ imagination come to life!
