What is cuter than a baby in a box? I guess we all have photos of our children in boxes.
Charles said Joshua was being a pest the other morning when he had some things to get done so he put Joshua in this box. He stayed there for quite a while, playing. My aunt suggested he put him in a laundry basket with some toys as that was one of her tricks. Charles said he had already been in the laundry basket and had tipped it over to his dismay. This box is a pretty snug fit. I will have to show Charles the boat that Sandy at I Majored in Home Economics made for her young grandson. ( It was very nice!!)
All this talk about boxes reminds me of the book, Christina Katerina and the Box. That book was beloved by all three of our children. It tells the story of a little girl who turns a box into many things using her imagination. I still recommend this book to young parents. It is an oldie but goodie. I still have a copy of it in my Nana Box of Books.
When we painted the Man Cave/Grandkids room, I went through the toys and books and got rid of some that were broken or the kids have out grown them. It was rather sad. Kendall and Landon are big kids now and the younger kids are not here very often so I bit the bullet. I donated a few things and now the room is neater. I still have my memories but it is amazing at how quickly children grow up. I was looking at Instagram and noted that one of the two year olds I taught at Central Weekday School started med school!! Now that did make me feel old but also proud that this young woman is reaching for the stars.
Life has its seasons and sometimes I have to remember to enjoy the season I am in today!
