The last large appliance in our house was a new refrigerator purchased 2-3 summers ago. Of course it came with a built in giant cardboard box perfect for kids to play in. I will never, EVER be able to get a certain vision out of my head, the vision that I saw when I looked out the back kitchen window one day that summer. All of my children, even a couple of neighbor kids, happily crawling one by one, through the cardboard tunnel. Isn't it wonderful how kids can find so much joy in the little things, I thought. Suddenly I noticed the boy standing on the outside with a big breadknife from my kitchen, carving windows into the side, while the unsuspecting children crawled by the sawing knive.
Oh boy. Thankfully nobody got hurt. But wow. You certainly have to be on your toes as long as there are children nearby.
Apparently even little Ukrainian children love cardboard boxes!
And I am loving my brand new stacked washer and dryer given to me by my mother-in-law for Christmas! She ordered it the day after Thanksgiving and it finally arrived last week! She told me that if anybody needed two washing machines it was me. HA. Thanks MN! You are right, I didn't realize it until now, just how much I needed it! What a blessing it has been!
