"This is what you meant?"

Why yes, that IS my kid in his Christmas PJ's.  Sitting in a cardboard box.  With a sour look on his face. 

Jake was home sick from school yesterday, he had been sent home the day before with a fever of 102.5.  Fortunately, he was feeling better the next day, but still had to stay at home.  It was nice to spend the day, just him and I, snuggling on the couch together, watching "Nemo", then making this deluxe edition pirate ship.  Why are you laughing?  Oh wait, probably because you saw the picture above.

Ok, so we needed to pass some time before lunch, and I told Jake that we could make a super cool pirate ship! What kid wouldn't want that?  I guess he had different visions in his head.  Because when we finished everything (like drawing windows on the side of the box, putting that flag up and making a telescope out of a paper towel roll), he said (and I quote): "This is what you meant?"   Ouch.  My creative skills are clearly not up to par.  Walk the plank, mama!

hahahaha! Just cause you make a sign that says it is a ship, doesn't make it a ship! I think you did a good job. Maybe don't set his expectations so high next time and just give him the box to play with ;o)
