I’ve been pondering a truly brilliant idea, and I’m finally going to share it with the world.

When my kids are big enough to play pretend, I’m going to build a large box. With doors that can have panels attached by velcro to turn it into anything. A magic wardrobe, a blue police box, a vanishing cabinet, whatever.

It’ll be like having a very durable, re-usable refrigerator box. But big enough for me to play in with them. Because I’m not letting the kids have all the fun.

If they’re going to Narnia, or Hogwarts, or the Planet of the Ood, I’m going too.
