Who Needs a Mortgage? Cardboard Boxes Rock!
The upside of having to purchase TWO cribs this past weekend was that the empty boxes provided hours of entertainment for the kids. Also, the store gave us a 10% Twin Discount for purchasing two cribs & two crib mattresses.
The big box became a space rocket. Matt cut eye and arm-holes into the smaller box and the kids took turns wearing it like a robot costume.
This morning there were crayons, backpacks, pillows and paper spilling out of the big box.
"Why is there so much stuff in there?" I asked.
"Well, Mom," Jude explained, "when you go on space trips, you need lots of stuff."
"Well, I guess that's true. But how do you all fit in there?" I wondered.
"Oh, we just do," replied Jewel.
Which proves that if our kids are content to cram themselves into cardboard boxes, there's no reason we need to move to a bigger house to make room for the twins.
How will we all fit in this house?
We just will.
Besides, I doubt any bank is going to give us a 10% Twin Discount on a new mortgage!
