I bought Kolby this great Marble Maze Tower for his birthday, thinking he'd have a blast putting it together. Instead, it sat, unnopened, for two weeks. I thought about returning it, but instead, I decided it would make a great afternoon of family fun and togetherness.
So on Monday, when all the kids were home on Labor Day, and wanting to plant themselves in front of the tv, I told them all to gather 'round the table to put together the Marble Maze Tower.
Moans. Complaints. Distractions.
I was ignored.
Soon, it was just me, sitting at the table, with instructions in hand, trying to figure out how to build this tower.
It took hours.
When it was finally done, I called everyone to gather round the table for the "maiden voyage" of the marbles.
The kids watched...for about 12 seconds. Then left.
Once again, I was deserted. I sighed, and looked around, then was happily surprised! I had an audience. An audience of one.
Georgie was thrilled with the Marble Tower, and watched the marbles go through the maze again and again.
