Aunt Mary sent a huge package from California. There were plenty of cool toys within. They were but a passing fancy stacked up next to the non-toy toy, of course. I panicked at first when I saw the packing peanuts. My first instinct was to not let one stray puff out of the box, close it up and hide it in the garage as quickly as possible, before anyone got any bright ideas. Then Ben said “it’s like snow!”. And I remembered that I, once upon a time, encouraged mess-making as a living back when I taught preschool. So, I told my inner neat freak to take a hike, and we played in the snow!
In addition to the jumping, running, sliding, throwing, whooping and hollering, there were “snow plows”,
burying the baby,
and making snow angels, of course.
And then, we cleaned it all up. Just like preschool. La.
So, thanks Aunt Mary, for the California snow.
Oh, yes, and for the great toys, too. 🙂
Baby loves her new bed.
