Did you know that a visit to the post office could be an exciting event? It can, if you have an imaginative five-year old boy with you!
As we stepped into the post office, my little guy noticed that the floor looked like the steps of an escalator. So we had to stand on the "escalator" before we could proceed to the next part of the post office.
Then my little guy saw a big round table that had an odd metal track on the floor going around it. "Choo Choo train!" he exclaimed. Of course he had to take a ride on the "choo choo train."
Then he noticed that if he talked really loud, he could hear an echo. Yes, you guessed it, he started yelling random words as loud as he could so that he could hear the echo.
We finally made it into the room where our package could be mailed. My little guy thought it would be a good time to pull out his Sponge Bob Squarepants video game. It was just too quiet and solemn in that post office line. Soon all of the customers were chuckling as they listened to the cheerful music.
My little guy made it a great time for everyone!
