Well, J and his dad bought a pinball machine finally! They’ve been wanting to do this for several months but finally found a cheap one that they like last week. It’s a work not-yet-in-progress and will probably take them many months to get it into shape. They are both very excited, it’s always nice to have an intriguing project, whether you are 4 or 33. 😉
We spent the morning in pjs, tinkering and working at home. E settled in at the tool table and after a few minutes C left his position on the furnace vent and joined him. They hammered and drilled quite contentedly.
C has been permanently banned from putting his feet in the vent after I found handfuls of little toys dropped down the duct pipe. Couldn’t have seen that coming. 😉 Here he is putting small things into a container, something he really loves to do currently.
C finally got “lovely” flowers at the store and he’s been carrying them with him through the house. Every time we pass a flower display in a grocery store, he asks me to buy him some. Aldi had cheap ones so I acquiesced. They only spilled 4 times yesterday…. Also, they are perfect for a pretend jungle for little animals.
E rode downstairs in the laundry basket, grinning happily. This 36 pound, 36 inch kid tall still insists he’s “tiny!”.
