Do your kids play with ice?
Yeah, mine do, too.
Most of them simply eat it... or freeze toys in blocks of ice for the sheer joy of chipping them out later.
Thomas, however, has taken it to an art form. For the past three days he has been tending to his "pet ice."
I kid you not.
In fact, just a few minutes ago we heard him shout from the back:
"Daddy! Guess what my pet ice and I are doing right now! We're playing chess!"
And here's the proof:
Bless his heart. We really do give him more toys to play with than that! *grin*
Speaking of chess, though, I have to brag on Thomas for a minute. This six-year old TAUGHT HIMSELF CHESS just by watching others after one day. He knows where each of the pieces go, how they move, and the basics of the game. DH played with him this morning and he was in heaven!
