Can't see him???
Look a little closer.....
Did you find him yet????
There he is!
A few weeks ago the kids decided that it would be great fun to empty EVERY.SINGLE.TOY. out of the toy box and pile it on Jared. Jared, not thinking, let them do it. And what did they decide was the greatest game ever for the next month? Emptying out all the toys and pretending the toy box was a rocket ship. While I appreciate my children's stellar imaginations, picking up this giant mountain of toys every day got old fast. We have since gone through and taken out all the toys that are no longer age appropriate, are broken, or just don't get played with. There was a small throw away pile, a small give away pile and a significant pile of toys that got packed away until Cohen is big enough to play with them.
They still like to play "Rocket", but cleaning up afterwards is no longer such a chore. And that makes for one much happier mommy.
