A Boy and His Bins
Aidan's new favorite past time is to play with the storage bins in his room. Construction takes place prior to naps and bedtime. We can hear something going on and look forward to peeking in after he is asleep to see what he has done. He likes to put all of his "things" in the bins and then arrange them. Sometimes he lines them up on the floor like a train or stacks them in his bed. Occasionally we'll go in to his room in the morning and find him in a bin on his bed.
Aidan has also developed a love of jeans and requests to wear them every day. This has not been possible because 1) the weather has been too warm and 2) the boy doesn't own enough pairs. He's decided to take matters into his own hands and has been digging through his drawers after we leave his room. I walked into his room the other morning and didn't see him in his bed. I looked across the room and found him sitting in his chair with his jeans on. "I found some pants." he said. We now leave a pair beside his bed to minimize the rooting in his drawers.
