Ms. L in the Box

You know you’re a mom when…you let her take all of her toys out of the box just because sitting in it makes her so happy 🙂

And so it goes…


  1. Mommy Needs a Vacation says:
    Oh my!! Those pics are so cute! My kids have so sat in the *box*. Boxes from everywhere!!
  2. What is it with kids and boxes?? How cute...
  3. Yep. If there's a small box like space around, kids are gonna stuff themselves into it.

  4. LOL, my daughter's latest attempt was to stick herself in a shoe box. Yeah...that didn't work as well as she would have liked!
  5. How cute! My kids LOVE to play in my laundry hampers. LOL
  6. Yep been there done that... It's so much fun to let them have a box ;)
  7. ParkerMama says:
    Such a doll!
  8. So she's gonna be a Jack in the box for Holloween? =)
  9. Life Is A SandCastle says:
    Boxes are the best toys:)
  10. That is a happy girl!
  11. My little guy loves to do that too!
    Happy WW!
  12. says:
    Still, at three, Felix is all about the boxes.

    Cracks me up.

    Ms. L's quite a cutie!
  13. And Miles To Go... says:
    aww, so adorable!
  14. Just the right size.
  15. Busy Working Mama says:
    Too cute! She is adorable. My (now) 3 year old still does that with regular old cardboard boxes. I think the box is sometimes mroe fun than the contents :) Happy Wednesday!
  16. What a great smile!! How can you say no to that?
  17. Its all about making the kids happy.
  18. Doll Clothes Gal Pal says:
    So cute! That box really made her happy huh mum? :)
  19. Secret Mom Thoughts says:
    Boxes are so much fun. She is adorable.
  20. Total cutie Natalie!
  21. Kim @ This Belle Rocks says:
    LOL, baby-in-a-box! Happy WW!
  22. I remember how much fun it was to get in boxes. They are FASCINATING.

    Ms. L is such a beautiful girl!
  23. Just Another Mom of 2 says:
    So sweet! You have to love how they like containers or empty boxes or paper towel rolls more than the millions of toys we get for them. What is up with that?
  24. Mom, the box is so much more fun than the toys! Cute pic.
  25. Alex loves to hide in boxes. We've got an ottoman that opens up just like I was disturbed when I walked into the living room to hear screaming coming from my ottoman.

    Apparently David thought it would be funny to see how Alex reacted when he put the lid on for a few seconds. Awesome parenting right there.
  26. Andie@multiplemama says:
    Sometimes I think they'd be just as happy at christmas with the boxes as anything else.
  27. Sharlene T. says:
    So true! My girls always preferred the box to the contents of presents, too! Could never figure that out, but it sure was fun watching them having a great time...
  28. Melissa {adventuroo} says:
    My kid loves getting in the laundry baskets. Kids love boxes!
  29. Ahhhh, the box, so funny how something so simple manages to entertain our kiddos. Why do I continue to spend money on toys?

    Very sweet capture:)
  30. Aw, look at that sweet face.
  31. Joann Mannix says:
    She is so beautiful. And my heart just skipped a beat, when I saw this picture. My girls used to do the very same thing. It's images like this that make me miss those days.
  32. Kristi {at} Live and Love...Out Loud says:
    What a gorgeous little girl! You definitely know you're a mom when you look at photos of other people's children and your heart melts. :)
    Thanks for stopping by and linking up Natalie. Have a great day.

    Kristi, Live and Love...Out Loud
  33. I'm quickly learning that it doesn't matter how many or how much you spend on toys, it's the box they love!!
    Cute pics, I love it!!!
  34. The Sharp's says:
    She looks so big here! Too cute as always!
  35. WeeMasonMan's Mom says:
    What a cutie! Mason is all about emptying boxes of their toys, but not about getting in them... yet.
  36. redriverpak says:
    Cute! My ankle grabbers used to like to play in the clothes hamper, so we would dump all the clothes out and they would have a field day :)
  37. You buy the expensive toy....and they want to play with the box. I don't get it.
  38. Miss M isn't in to boxes, eh?
  39. Hehe! My daughter used to pull the pots out of the kitchen cabinet and stuff herself in them. Cutie!
  40. So cute!
  41. The Flying Chalupa says:
    Amazing how much she's growing! I haven't seen a picture of her in a about a month - and look at that! She's growing up. Too cute. ps - every basket and bin in our house gets emptied every day.
  42. Wow, I have almost that exact same photo. Gotta love kids.
  43. I think everyone has the same photo...I took one of Jack a few weeks ago....then realized he became "Jack in the Box" LOL - I'm cracking myself up :)
  44. Aging Mommy says:
    Done that! My daughter loves to get all her toys out of all the wicker baskets, line them all up and then get in one and have her BFF get in another as they play trains, The clean up is hard :-)
  45. staceysmotheringmoments says:
    Boxes make the best toys! We should just give the kids boxes for Christmas. It's much cheaper and that's all they really want.
  46. Boxes are a mother's best friend!
  47. I enjoyed being greeted by her happy face this morning :)
  48. blueviolet says:
    If it brings a smile that wonderful to her face, I can't blame you!
  49. Lori @ In Pursuit of Martha Points says:

    I remember Child A being happiest sitting in the laundry basket.

  50. Maya loves boxes - she would empty all the toys in her toy box and sit in it for hours. I didn't care, as long as she was entertained. You know your a mom when all you want is peace and quiet for 5 minutes, at whatever cost. :)
  51. D1 likes to climb into any and all boxes. Cracks me up.
  52. Jennie @ Modern Mamaz says:
    Sometimes I wonder why I spend so much money on Christmas and Birthday's. If I were smart, I'd just wrap an empty box and she'd think I was the coolest mom ever. Especially if it were Dora wrapping paper. With a pacifier tied to the top.
  53. Michaela (aka Mama Michie) says:
    So cute! Noah loved playing in the laundry baskets. I wonder what Abby will love getting into.
  54. Organic Motherhood with Cool Whip says:
    Awwwwww!! She is TOO cute. We actually have a huge refrigerator box right now that is the kids favorite toy. Why is it that I spend hundreds of dollars on real toys when their favorite things to play with are not toys at all??
