    Kids are great. They don't have to think out side of the box. They're not yet inside the box, they're already there out there, somewhere.

    Great idea from your son........multi-use items are great. Not only is it a pillow, it can also be a quick body bath sponge as well!!!!!!!!

    Very cool!!
    I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.

    Sew a strap on that thing so you can have it on like reverse knee pads. Won't slide away from you in the hammock
