Wordless Wednesday: Our boxes are packed

We've been packing (I know, I've probably mentioned it in every post for the past two weeks). And of course, that means loads of boxes and tape. So this is my idea of packing:

I kept losing rolls of tape or the scissors amidst the mess of bubble wrap and stuff.
So I took one of the boys' paper suitcases to hold all the packing materials,
and carried it around with me as I packed.


... but the males in the family have a different idea altogether. Hubby's idea: Packing is easy, just throw it all into boxes, and everything would be fine. They are professional movers after all. (Sorta true, just that it took longer than I expected.)

Junior J's idea of packing: Help yourself to a box, and ensure you tape it up securely with lots of tape after you place your treasured possessions inside. Then declare that you're all packed and ready to go!


And what's inside? One of his dinosaurs, a tomato and egg for the journey, and more play food (which was wrapped in plastic) in the paper bag, in case the tomato and egg were not sufficient for a huge dino appetite. 

He refused to let me open the box, saying I just had to ship it as it is. I took this pic one day during nap time. :p

Baby J's idea of packing: Fit yourself in a box, in case they forget to bring you along for the ride. 



Or if the box doesn't fit, find a bigger one that does. Never mind that you have to share the space with some toys. After all, that's more fun isn't it?

He has been climbing into half-packed boxes and opening up and messing their contents,
so much so I had to tape all my boxes shut, even when I wasn't done!
