It’s amazing to me how much money we spend on games and toys when my kids can entertain themselves all afternoon with a piece of baling twine and a rock.
Like playing hide and seek in the tractor bucket…
This kept them busy for 30 minutes before I even came over to find them! I get distracted when they’re distracted from distracting me because I can’t help but wonder what they’re up to. Yes, it makes it hard to get anything done.
I love this though–watch the sibling dynamics…
See the little guy looking for directions? He’s watching the older two every second to see what he should be doing. He copies what they do, what they say, and does what they say.
See that grin? He loves being included. Being one of the “big” kids.
And see the tough guy over there totally oblivious to whatever they’re doing? He’s outgrown that stage. He’s stopped doing everything she tells him to. We thought we were happy about that. Until the honey incident.
But we’ll save that for another post.
