We’ve been having some issues with our water pump lately, and we ended up having someone come out to install a new part. (THANK THE LORD, it was still under warranty for 2 more months, so we didn’t have to pay $150!)
Keith offered to throw out the old part, but the man said he needed it for the warranty. He offered to give Keith the box, which Keith brought into the house for the boys.
Oh, what fun the boys have had with this box in the past week! I just threw it out a little while ago, and Alex sobbed! There were big tears dripping down my little boy’s face, as he just didn’t want to let that box go. It almost made me go and bring it in from the garage, but I resisted. (Our living room was ready to say goodbye after a week of housing this giant box!)
It’s been a crawl-in house, a place to stand up and peek out the little “window”, a slide, a bobsled…you name it! (Alex liked us to stand him in the tall box, and then he’d let the box tip over so he fell to the ground.) But now it’s falling apart and almost useless.
