I can think of many advantages for my kids that both their daddy and I work at home together, we are both home when they go to school and when they get home. Even when we are working we are only five steps from the back door. From time to time we can do things like just stop what we are doing and take them fishing. But if you are a five year old boy the best part is that you get the best set of building blocks imaginable. My five year old spent about an hour going back and forth to our scrap pile to build these beauties. He says that they are star destroyers I think. I am very sure that they are space ships from star wars. I think he is a genius!
