Reasons Why My Children Do Not Need More Toys:
By Tammy Rosenfeldt
~ They started off as babies who found my Tupperware drawer much more fascinating than their toy box.
~ The days I change the paper towel roll in the kitchen bring great excitement as they claim their new sword or telescope.
~ Their current toys are only exciting when I either reorganize them/put them neatly away or when I start my garage sale pile.
~ Who needs toys when jumping on my bed like the five little monkeys brings tears of laughter?
~ They are content to look at the clouds and find shapes-most recently Caleb claimed he saw Thomas the Engine. Really-just shouted it out while in the car.
~ To make one of them want to play with a toy, all I have to do is give it to the other one. Suddenly, that item becomes the best thing in the whole entire world.
~ The days I mop the kitchen floor and move the chairs into the living room are cause for adventure as they build tents and "dark, dark rooms."
~ A flashlight brings amusement to all for hours.
~ And my personal favorite - the other day they literally fought over who got to play with the fly swatter. I really wish I was kidding.
