Come on get in the boat, fish!

 - by Brittny

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!
