Fun with Toys
We brought out the old bouncy house,
princess ball pit thing that we've been
storing in the attic for awhile.
I'm not a big fan of princess-y things and it
always seemed to get balls everywhere,
But we saved it because it was always a really
big hit with Ava and we suspected baby #2
might love it equally as much.
Ava seems to LOVE everything we bring
back out for Norah, she has played with this
thing non-stop. She turns it into a million
other things which really equals her destroying
it as quickly as possible, all the while plotting
what to do with it next.
She has drug it all through the house, turned it
upside down to make a fort and flipped Norah
out of it over & over which she assured me
Norah LOVED and judging from her laughter
that seemed to be accurate.
Norah loves it too. She loves getting in and
out of it a million times a day. She loves all
the games Ava makes up with it and she
enjoys just sitting and hiding inside, peaking
out at us.
Ava daydreams about sleeping inside of the thing.
She kept trying to convince me how comfortable
she was sure it would be.
She begged me to let her "camp out" in
the living room in it. I said hell no because
that would be like agreeing to never have her
go to bed, hanging out right in the middle of
our adult time. So not happening.
But she did finally get her main wish, which was
to sleep on the thing. It's good she got that in,
I think she has managed to pop it in about 6
different areas and the duct tape is just not
cutting it, so it's quickly on it's way out.
That princess-y bounce house, ball pit, castle
thing didn't last long this time, but I still think
they got a good life out of it.
As much as I love watching them really enjoy
their toys, I'm not going to lie, not really sad
to see that go.
Bye-bye princess castle thingamajig,
you will be missed, just not by me : )
