We get our new house in just over one week (insert screams of excitement). One might think we would have our house packed up by now, but one would be dead wrong. Packing is hard. Packing with three kids (especially ones that are home every day) is harder. There are many things we should be doing with all the boxes we have (such as filling them with household items), however, using the flattened boxes as car ramps seems to be the priority.
In fairness to me, I have packed up a ton of things we don't use on a daily basis (cold room stuff, books, some kitchen stuff, garage stuff). However, there are SO MANY things we use every day, I can't figure out when to pack them up. I've decided on the night before we move.
Every couple of days I ask for some boxes to be brought in from the garage so I can pack some things during naptime (ha!). But these boxes seem to be piling up (as in they are still flattened and empty leaning against the basement wall). I had the brilliant idea to prop one up against the coffee table to use as a car ramp, and Harrison loved it.
We raced the cars for awhile (I'm Buzz Light-year and Harry is Spiderman), and then we did 'tricks'. This was a fun way to pass some time (when it was too cold to play outside...yet again) and avoid packing.
I'm sure we'll come up with a few other fun ways to use these boxes before the big move. I just hope at some point they end up filled with our things and loaded into a truck!
Thanks for reading :D
