only thing i didn't consider is that while i was busy making a mess in the kitchen for four hours, the kids were busy making a mess in the rest of the house.
sam decided to "be" Wall-E. if you've watched the movie, you know his job was to clean up trash. so sam starts going around the house with pretend robot arms pretending to pick up trash.
what he was actually doing was picking up all the little boxes filled with toys that were stacked so nicely on their target toy rack and dumping them out. yes, he dumped out toys throughout the house. somehow in his sweet little mind dumping out toys was equal to Wall-E picking up trash. i know, i don't get it either.
