What's mine is yours

When it comes to toys, Will and I try to follow the "less is more" and "quality vs quantity" approach. We try not to buy Nathan very many toys mainly because we don't think he needs very many toys. But when you combine the following items:
  • two loving and generous families
  • the first and only grandchild on both sides
  • Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Chinese New Year, Easter, and a 1st birthday
You are left with lots and lots and lots of toys!!!

Yet even with all those toys, Nathan would still rather collect things that belong to me and Will and sneak them into his toy bins. As much as he loves his Hokey Pokey Elmo, musical instruments, toy cars, and blocks, he seems just as happy playing with an empty makeup bag, the TV remote or a dish towel.

  1. Kids are very creative and have amazing imaginations....too bad some of us lose that ability as we grow up!

    Just stopped by from SITS to say hello. Hope you will do the same.
