The inventor

Wyeth is hysterical. His mind works in ways that my mind just doesn't work in. I've blogged about his creations. Give this boy a roll of tape and some cardboard and he is off and running!

On the night of the Daddy Daughter dance, Wyeth and I stayed home. We went out to a lovely dinner together and then made a creation. The first was just to build a slope. And roll the new bouncy ball down it.  That went well.


Then we added points. If the ball fell into a particular Tupperware, it got assigned a specific number of 'points'. Also fun.

Then we added toothpicks to see if we could stop the ball or slow down the ball. Ideally, it would move from side to side.  That was awesome to make but it didn't work.

This Saturday, we got really busy with making a pathway for a bouncy ball. He was a riot as we created this 'pathway'. We loved it! The ball had to go through the Cereal box, through the hole in the box, into a toilet paper roll, into an old Crest box, into a toilet paper roll, bounce off a plastic boat, fall into a third toilet paper roll and into an old Kleenex box.

Totally fun. Totally free. Awesome creativity!

I love being his mom.
