This morning I cut out pieces of blue fabric to make roads.
I drew lines of them and had Nevaeh set them up.
I then grabbed the tissue boxes piling up in the linen cupboard.
Usually I save them for Jie's school but today they made a Zoo, a coffee shop, a car wash and a home.
I labeled each one and used numbers that Nevaeh could identify for me.
For three hours she was completely amused.
And for three hours I could sit back, relax and enjoy her childhood.
