The Little Daily: Out Of The Box

Don't let the hideous old lino in our kitchen fool you; we are not complete paupers. And our children have altogether too many toys.

But when a box that usually holds a trainset is more fun than the trainset itself, you have to ask yourself why you bothered dropping hundreds of dollars at the mid-year toy sales.

Don't you actually love when your kids do this though? When their little imaginations trump the latest and greatest toy? I do. I really, really do.  

Hello friends


I’m Angie!  I mum. I write. I wife. My husband would say this is the correct order.  He’s so neeeedy. I live with my family in Melbourne, Australia, where I complain about the weather for 90% of the year – but I can’t imagine living anywhere else. Except maybe in Lake Como, waving to my neighbours George and Amal each morning.

    I know right, Why do we spend all that money on the crazy toy sales for our little munchkins, when all they do is play with the box it came in lol…

    I still love to spend all daddys money on my girls its the greatest feeling being able to buy my daughters toys/clothes. By the way your boys are just Gorgeous Angie love this photo of them both <3

    I like that they are doing this together – two kids playing happily with each other is a total bonus. If it goes on for longer than 15 minutes, it’s a double score.

    Love this. P usually prefers sitting in her train set container too… and it’s why I don’t spend a great deal on toys (that, and I’m a tight-arse). Imagination rules. x
