We received a shipment in a long, narrow box a couple days ago, and Miles has been extremely eager to open the package. I thought he just wanted to see what was inside, but I was a fool.
Yes, what he really wanted to do was build his own porta-john.
The box has taken several forms this weekend. It’s been a house, a pirate ship, and a drum set. It just proves what I’ve always held to be true: you can buy your kid all sorts of toys, but the best gift for a toddler is always the box the toy came in.*
