what happened to imagination.. is it out there?



You know, William and Theodore has been driving us insane for several months now over three lil things..
1. Nintendo
2. Gameboy
3. Marys Puter.

Now.. I have a rule, Gameboye is to be put in bookcase under window in livingroom every time it they are NOT in use. So.. Theofore is getting in the habit of doing this.. William? No.. now he cannot find his.. he 'lost' it.. and so the fight is on.. over using teds.. if I had my druthers, William would not be permitted to even TOUCh teds.. period.. he lost his.. he can find it..

but they fight.. and fight..

Send them to their room.. and they fight over the Nintendo..

They fight soo much that Mary said no to her puter being used by them

NOW.. both boys are pissed.. cuz the other day I said no more nintendo or gameboy for a while.. and they are confused, lost and not knowing what to do..

now they have more blocks then the average day care center.. they have train set.. cars.. actually.. they have so many toys that we could prolly have a yardsale with nothing but toys in it..

And they have books bokks books and color books, note books, pencils, crayons..

I could start a day care and have enough toys for 6 to 8 kids.. of agegroups from 3 to 10.

And they say they have nothing to do!

I remember when I thought it was a big thing to play with paper.. my cousins and I would make paper airplanes, paper chains.. play paper football.. (remember those times?)..

I remember sitting on the sofa while Pauline and Grandaddy watched tv.. I would sit cross legged and play with dolls between my legs.. acting like my legs were 'cliffs' and caves.. I would do that for HOURS.. and sometimes my cousin roddy would come in and toss blocks down my legs and call it a mud slide or worse he would throw his cars down and act like he ran a car off the cliff

I remember colouring for hours.. and drawing things.. and playing with crayons,, i would color the page, then 'erase' with a penny the crayon so it was like a 'faded' color.. then use the same colors and 'trace' the outline of each color.. and think it was 'purdy'..

what happened to those days of 'pure imagination'?

Hold your breath.
Make a wish.
Count to three.

Come with me and you'll be in a world of pure imagination
Take a look and you'll see into your imagination.
We'll begin with a spin traveling in the world of my creation.
What we'll see will defy explanation.

If you want to view paradise
Simply look around and view it.
Anything you want to do it.
Want to change the world?
There's nothing to it.

There is no life I know to compare with pure imagination.
Living there you'll be free if you truly wish to be.

If you want to view paradise
Simply look around and view it.
Anything you want to, do it.

There is no life I know to compare with pure imagination.
