I spotted this big-screen TV box on my neighbor’s curb yesterday morning and knew I’d found the ultimate toy. So I snatched it up before the trash men and placed it on our kitchen, where it consumed approximately 70 percent of the floor space and delighted the boys for about 70 percent of the day. During Owen’s nap, Will drew windows and flowers and grass on the outside of the “house,” as well as a pretty interesting representation of our cat, Frances. In one desperate attempt to buy myself some more quiet writing time I suggested, when asked “Mom, what else can I draw?” that he might color the bricks on the “house.” Will hasn’t quite learned the art of eye-rolling yet, but he told me that that would take WAY too long.
