1. It's exciting to find a key in the mail box to one of the BIG boxes

1. It’s exciting going to the mail box and finding one of those special keys that allow you access to one of those BIG mail boxes – then you know it’s a good mail day

2. It feels like Christmas opening the box - even though you know what's inside (Mum edit: and your credit card has been debited)

3. Your Elsa thermos, that Mum couldn't find anywhere else, is delivered straight to your house only days after selecting the Elsa one over the My Little Pony, Princess and plain purple one in the weekend

3. My thermos for hot food at school is delivered straight to the house, only days after sitting on the stool beside Mum, selecting the ‘Elsa’ one over the ‘Starlight’, ‘Princess Palace Pets’ and plain purple one in the weekend

4. And since I chewed through the cord of my headset, I chose a new pair of those too. Pink sparkles!

Box graffiti

The best thing about Mum and Papi getting new stuff is Rafa and I get to play in the box.

The best thing about Mum and Papi getting new stuff is Rafa and I get the box.

And we're allowed to graffiti these walls.

We’re allowed to draw on these walls.

In fact Mum loves my graffiti so much we get to keep the box another week.

The better the graffiti, the longer we get to keep the box. ┬áThis box won’t make it out to recycling for a while.
