I was about to title this post “Piper’s new toy”, and then I realized that I’ve probably used that, at least once before. And then I thought that you probably think Piper gets a new toy at least once a week, which in and of itself isn’t necessarily untrue, but they’re always “therapeutic”, so that means she’s not spoiled. It just means that her therapy arsenal is very well stocked. Yup.
Anyway, Piper loves this. Unfortunately, it’s larger than I had anticipated and takes up a large portion of our living room. At least a large portion of my husband’s viewing area between the couch and the TV. So it’s definitely going to be one of those get-out-only-when-you-want-to-play-with-it toys. Thankfully it folds up nicely into a 1 1/2’ wide circle.
It’s a big pop-up play tent. You can thrown things into the roof part (which, at this point, is more for Luke’s and my enjoyment, and Piper’s frustration, because it’s really fun to see toys rain down on top of the kid and her have no idea that they’re coming. Or where they’re coming from), climb in the door, and look out the windows (which, even if Piper could stand independently, the windows would be no less than a foot above her eyes).
…and flash us her best cheesy smile on the way out for the eight-hundred and sixty-seventh time.
