For Christmas and his birthday, Alex received a few classic toys that the Mr. and I were almost more excited to play with than he was. Ok, fine--I'll admit that I pretty much hijacked the travel Lite Brite that our friends gave him for his birthday as soon as we got it home. And
I suffered a unexpected heartbreak the first time he and I played Chutes and Ladders. You want to see a child transform from wee preschooler to big kid in mere minutes? Watch him play a board game for the first time. I think I might stash those in the closet for just a few more months.
