Today I visited the dentist with my son. As I sat in the chair getting my teeth cleaned, my son became fidgity. "Mom, I'm bored."
"Then do something creative," I responded.
Maybe I should've thought that out before I responded, because my little guy got really creative - with the dentist's rinsing cups.
He pulled out a dozen cups and started stacking.
"Look, Mom! It's Grandpa Bowser's Castle (a Mario character, for those of you who are unfamiliar with the name, Bowser)."
He continued stacking, making various castle configurations with those cups.
The hygienist laughed. "Well, at least he's busy!"
