The Wonder of Toys

The “Sit and Spin.”  It’s the one toy I remember most from my childhood. Oh, I remember others too, but the “Sit and Spin” was definitely a favorite around the age that my daughters are now.  I remember how the grip on the wheel felt, how the sticker on the seat was slightly peeling and the rumble on the seat as I began my quest for super speed.

Today, the “cows” are our girls’ favorites.  (You might remember them as “Hoppity Hops.”) They love them.  We spend most afternoons conducting cow races.  They each have their own style. Della believes her pigtails make her fast.  Maggie believes her vocal cords somehow propel her forward.  I think they both may be right. (To see my girls in action, check out the video below!)

I find myself appreciating things I thought I had forgotten about my own childhood by watching my girls’ new experiences.  These two bring me so much sunshine.  They are the funniest, quirkiest, silliest, happiest, poutiness and most unique little girls. I couldn’t have asked more perfect little girls to be mine.  I can hardly wait to see the young women these two will become. 

(By the way, those “cows” the girls are riding will hold a full grown adult.  I heard that.)

I have never been to Greece so I’m very excited to share this amazing journey with you. I’m brushing up on the Greek language as we speak. ;-) Read More
