I’ve Always Dreamt of a ‘Boy In A Box’
During my college years, I would always joke about wanting a ‘boy in a box’. Looking back now I can’t even remember where the crazy idea initiated from but I know that we always would joke about one day finding a boy in a box and likewise the joke continued for quite some time. In my courtship with Joel, my girlfriends would always say things like, guess you found your boy in a box. It was, and will always be, a good joke – an insider joke nonetheless – but one that we all can’t help smiling at.
Well the other day I was playing with my sons downstairs in their playroom. I walked away to the laundry room to switch over some clothing, came back in the room and found my two sons doing this:
I couldn’t help but laugh. And we sure laughed for a while! The more Mommy laughed, the more it happened. This ‘boy in a box’ routine went on for almost 40 minutes that evening! 40 minutes of playing with the same 3 items! It was beautiful.
It just goes to show you – you never know what you are going to get when you ask! I asked for a boy in a box; I ended up with two!
