...that I love about my kids.
Just now I came to the end of a roll of heavy duty foil (the kind that is not only thicker, but wider than the regular foil). Little Brother saw me take out the last foil, and then his eyes got big when he saw what I had for him: an extra-long cardboard tube.
(For the record, the regular, foot-long ones that come out of paper towel rolls or plastic wrap are known around here as "garnades," with good reason.)
"Ooooo, that's mine!" he proclaimed.
Who needs expensive toys when you have perfectly good cardboard tubes around? They can keep Little Brother busy for hours.
