Silly Moment

I like to get my nephews a little something for most holidays. I noticed the display of Easter candy while I was shopping. Knowing my nephews would get plenty of candy in their Easter baskets, I wanted to get them something different. I just happened to spot them across the aisle from the Easter candy… beach towels. Knowing my nephews will spend a lot of time at the pool as soon as it opens, I thought the food-themed, round towels would be fun. So I picked up the hamburger and the pizza for them.

I spent some time with them yesterday and gave them the towels. The 12 year old was appreciative, but not too impressed. The 3 year old, though, was excited and had fun being silly as only a 3 year old can. When he put the towel over his head, the round shape was just right to turn him into a “pizza ghost.” Walking around saying “I’m a pizza ghost” is hilarious if you are three! And the giggles are contagious!

    Isn’t it great that children can be so creative, “Pizza ghost?” Encouraging play can bring out so much creativity.

  2. Pizza ghost? I can just picture him running around saying “pepperoni” in a ghostly voice. The 12 year old probably likes it, he may be too cool to let you know.

    I think “pizza ghost” is pretty funny, even if you’re not 3. 🙂 Maybe the 12-year old’s problem was that “hamburger ghost” doesn’t have quite the same ring to it. I love this line: “being silly as only a 3 year old can”. It’s so true!

    The uninhibited joy of a three year old. I sure he made a cute “pizza ghost”.

    I love that you thought outside the (candy) box and looked for something they will use all summer long. There’s nothing like the silliness of a three year old. And their giggles are the best! Twelve year olds are too cool for silliness, but I bet he still likes his beach towel.
