The other day we decided to sit down as a family and play with some toys. Due to Cades recent fascination with putting things together we decided that Potato Head would be the perfect toy. For Christmas my mom and dad gave Cade a giant potato head with lots of little spuds and their accessories inside. As soon as the top came off of the big one Cade dumped all of the pieces out onto the floor and sadly, that is were his involvement ended. Jared and I got so into building these silly things and kept saying, "no, no, no, don't take the arm off, I am making a pirate," or "hey, I was going to use that mouth," or "could you take Cade in the other room while I finish?" Pathetic, I know, but true.
We had so much fun and were just busting a gut while we made the little potato heads into characters. Poor Cade, just looked at us as if we had lost it, and I guess in a way we had. It is amazing how you forget how much fun you had playing with toys when you were little and how easy it is to become territorial of something you have created. Needless to say, we were both proud of our creations and Cade was happy when it was time to put the toys away.
