Marian called it Roxaboxen. (She always knew the name of everything.) There across the road, it looked like any rocky hill -- nothing but sand and rocks, some old wooden boxes, cactus and greasewood and thorny ocotillo -- but it was a special place: a sparkling world of jeweled homes, streets edged with the whitest stones, and two ice cream shops. (from Roxaboxen)

Below is a little video I took of Naomi Baloney and her big giant mess. It looked like any mess -- pillows and blankets and books tossed all about --but it was a special boat: full of every modern convenience, floating, and useful for hauling in the days catch of fish. I don't like my voice in the video. I think I sound condescending to my baby girl, but she was so cute and excited about her mess that I decided to post it anyway.

  1. i couldn't play the video. What am i doing wrong?

  2. I don't know - works for us...I changed it from private to public. Maybe it will work now. Try again.

  3. It worked! I loved the flippers on the dolphin, and the fish at the end of the fishing pole. I thought the net and the fish in the pond was very creative too - but mostly I like the sound of my neice Naomi's voice. It makes me miss her very much. If I was there she would be upset because I would not stop hugging her and kissing her and not letting go :-)
