Maybe there's a future for them in engineering

Every day after lunch, I take a nap.  Edwin and Joseph take naps too, but the girls are too old for naps (or rather, would wake up Edwin) so I let them play quietly in our third-floor toy room.  When I come get them a few hours later (or longer, depending on how difficult the morning has been), I'm never quite sure what I'll find.  Sometimes the couch is turned into a fort.  The treadmill might be festooned with various scarves.  Sometimes they will have turned a few remaining UAB boxes into forts.  Once I found them both asleep on the couch.

A few days ago, they built a train track.

Not bad for a three and five year-old.  I guess there's nothing like boredom to inspire creative problem solving.

Boredom is an unappreciated child development tool. Great train track!!!

As an accomplished Brio engineer myself (My column material of choice being lego, not cardboard box), I approve.
