Last week, Cooper and Cole spent most of their days NOT playing with the endless amount of toys they have accumulated. Rather, they spent hours run and jumping into a pile of pillows. Who knew that a pile of pillow could keep Cooper and Cole occupied, happy, active and most importantly NOT FIGHTING for hours.
I think all parents have figured this secret out at one point or another. How pots and pans or Tupperware containers can keep a child’s interest is fascinating. Or how about that huge refrigerator or TV box when you were a kid? That was gold when we were young as they made the best forts and castles.
I think back when I was younger and how I did not have nearly the amount of toys that my sons’ have, yet I survived and have good memories. Why do we feel the need to have so many toys?
Maybe I need to bring out some of my ‘old school toys’ and see if those hold any interest for the boys. Or look for that big magic box.
