The Reason I Almost Never Buy Toys For My Kids

A few days ago, as I was literally tossing this cardboard carrier for Luzianne Sweet Tea (Dented Can - $1.99) into the trash, it struck me that it was right up Calvin's alley.

I offered it to him and he immediately snatched it up and ran to the toy room to gather his supplies, thanking me profusely as he sped off.

For the next 3 days straight, it rarely left his side.

It's a multi-purpose tool/office supply caddy and he seems to feel quite official when he has it in hand.

Who needs Legos and Transformers and Fisher Price do-dads when you have something as nifty as this?
