Jonathan and I are clearly having the time of our lives. The real reason to have a toddler around? Yes, he's loving and wonderful all by himself and we couldn't imagine life without him...but he has great toys! Do you remember that day long ago when you realised that your friends weren't playing with toys anymore (or if they were, it wasn't cool to admit it). You had to put your cars and dolls into a box that your mom put into storage (and you hoped against hope that they wouldn't end up in a garage sale someday). You had to learn new ways to call up your friends. Say things like "Do you want to hang out?" instead of "Do you want to come over to play?". The grand healing solution to that melancholy time happens years later. You have a kid...they have toys. In fact the best toys that they have are the ones you remember. (Hint to people who are not yet parents, or new parents just getting into the toy thing: if it was around when you were a kid, there is a reason they are still marketing it, kids actually love to play with it again and again). So in our house right now, we have puzzles and toy cars, stuffed animals, Little People, and best of all Duplo! (No worries, we'll get the real Lego when Elijah is 6...choking hazard you know!). Jonathan and I are having a great time! Here are some of our recent creations.

And then of course, there are those of us who never abandoned our toys, and kept plastecine and leggo in our lockers in highschool . . .
