2 Wood Blocks + 2 little boys with imagination = A mama who can't stop chuckling...

Just need to document this for my boys sake.

For the last 20-30 minutes my boys sat on opposite couches, each holding rectangular wood blocks. The proceeded to pretend they were playing hand held video games (the only thing like this in our house is Charley's Leapster). Charley talked through levels and explained to Henry what he had to do....Henry responded confidently. At times Charley got off his chair and went and sat next to Henry to point and better explain - let me reiterate...they were playing with a simple wood block.

HILARIOUS to me!

Our Wii sits not 6 feet away - and there was no asking or begging.  I LOVE that it isn't something they ever think of during the day. Occasionally during Henry's nap Charley asks - but during the day - my boys make their fun with wood blocks!

Love it. So glad to hear your kids actively use their imaginations and not default automatically to the real video games. Makes me happy and hopeful!

I love when kids exercise their imagination instead of being dependent on technology to do it for them. So great!

Love the picture too! They are cutie-pies!

They look so sweet together!! Wish I had a way to tear my little guy away from the Wii. We only let him play a little each night with his Daddy, but he still asks for it all day!

That is so cute! I love it when kiddos come up w/ ways to entertain themselves. Love that picture, they look so handsome. I was going to say beautiful, but my boys having been getting on to me for saying that about them. "Mom boys aren't beautiful. They're handsome." Ha!
