Boxing Bubba

There have been lots of moving boxes around my house lately.  My eight-year-old son decided to usurp one of them.  I found him parked in front of the TV, inside the box, wrapped up in a sleeping bag.

"Bubba, what are you doing?" I asked.

"Watching TV."

I guess that was obvious.  "Okay.  But why are you doing it in a box?"

"Because it's fun."

Of course.  Why else would he do it? "But Bubba, I need that box for packing."

"Mama, this is my box.  I'm all cushioned and comfy inside.  You can tape it up and send me to Georgia just like this!"

  4. What is it with kids and boxes? Our two year old niece who lived with us locked herself in the cat carrier once.

  10. Wouldn't that be great if we could snuggle ourselves in, tape ourselves up, and voila! arrive at our destination? Heaven!

  13. Ya gotta love the way that kid thinks. He sure keeps you on your toes. (And entertained!)

  14. It'll keep him out of mischief during the move! There's something about kids and boxes. Our 12-year-old still plays in them if given the chance.

    1. You're right. I'd have to rely on Schultz, and lately Schultz hasn't been very interesting. :)

  18. If you ship Bubba off to Georgia in a box, you wouldn't have to keep hearing, "Are we there yet?"

  19. Did I mention that you should really write a coffee table book!?
