Yesterday, Ella emptied out a small box of lego (I’m talking 5″ wide by 7″ long and about 7″ deep!) and then tried to sit in it. When I explained to her that she didn’t fit, she didn’t really seem to care, she wanted to sit in a box. So I suggested that we get a bigger one. We went into her room and emptied out a bucket of duplo and brought that out to the living room. She sat there happily with her lion and listened to some music. After about 15 minutes, she got out of her bucket, went and grabbed her drawing tablet and proceed to get back into the bucket. Where she spent the next 45 minutes. Needless to say, I got lots of work done.
That bucket followed us around all day long. Into the bathroom when I was getting ready to go out. Where she sat happily reading books while I did my hair. Into the kitchen, while I was cooking dinner. She sat, eating cheerios with her lion, only asking for more cheerios when her bowl was empty. After dinner, it was back into her bucket and she wanted a ride in the bucket to bed! I think, if we’d let her, she would have happily slept in the bucket.
I love the fact that it’s the simple things in life that make Ella happy.
Cute isn’t it?
