Avengers Space Ship

First of all, I hope that all of you moms out there had a wonderful Mother's Day. I did...after I helped haul the toilet upstairs and install it. If you missed the last post, my wonderful husband got me a toilet for Mother's Day. Fortunately for him, he also got me a very nice gift certificate for a spa. He must've known that my nails would need a major fixing after the toilet installation. Anyway, my family and I went to the movies and saw The Avengers. Very cool movie, if you like action packed films with lots of things blowing up. My son thought that was great. So, when we got home, he took the toilet box and made an Avengers rocket ship. You should have seen the control panels on this thing. It was impressive! "What do you think, Mama?" he asked, sitting in the cockpit. "I think that thing is pretty awesome!" I said. He played in that thing a while, and then found some more cardboard to work with. Soon had had constructed a playhouse. Now all of his contraptions are sitting on his bedroom floor. There's hardly room to walk around. Maybe I should call Captain America to help him tidy up.

    1. Hmmm. That's a good idea. I'll have to see if I can contact that big green smashing machine!

  2. Isn't it amazing how much kids love boxes? We have several large ones cluttering up our living room--our very small living room--but the kids won't let me throw them away. :)

    1. I know what you mean about not wanting to throw them away. It's amazing how attached kids get to their cardboard creations!

    1. Yes, he does. I wonder if he'll grow up to be some kind of engineer.

  6. It's funny how kids (and, well, cats)are more into creating something out of a cardboard box than anything else. I have yet to see The Avengers, but it's on the list. My son is 8 and it's right up his alley.

    1. Your son will love the Avengers. It's a long show, but the time really flies since there's so much action.

  8. Haha! A toilet for Mother's Day! How fun is that. LOL (yes, the nail/spa part does make up for it) My daughters (and I) used to LOVE making forts and houses and other various things from large cardboard boxes! What fun. I haven't seen Avengers yet, but I'd like to.
