Recycling & New Construction

Last week, my son and DIL asked me if I could come over, spend the night and watch Mia since the teachers at her school had workshops the next day.  Eagerly, I packed an overnight bag, hitting the road the next day.  Anxious to spend time with them, it meant I get a break from my routine while helping them out at the same time!

I sleep downstairs in their partially finished basement which has a huge bedroom.  Little did I know that there was new construction added since I last spent the night.  

 The next day, after we had breakfast, Mia and I decided it was time for her to move in to her new house that "my Daddy built for me when he got his new tires."

 "Nana, I have to make this window just a little bit bigger," she said as she began to modify her Dad's creation.  Tearing one of the "panes" she ran upstairs and said, "Daddy, Daddy, I had to make the window fit my face.  Is that okay?"

Watching and listening to Mia, I decided that new tires are good for the soul!
I was the announcer.
She was the performer.
Each performer had a different name and a different act.

Does your imagination still work as good as it did when you were a child?
Mine does!


Of course my imagination is still as good ;-) Her house is cool!

What a great play house! There's nothing like a big box to get a child's (or adult's) creativity and imagination working. The bonus is that there are no batteries required!! :)

This all so much reminds me of my granddaughter's blog Childhood101. You should check it out. She won awards overseas for it and has so many wonderful ideas for children.
I feel you had a wonderful overnight stay at your family's home.
