Sebastian has recently been through a puzzle working phase. It was both a delight and an aggravation. The delight cames in his pleasure and the fact that when I need to occupy him I could say, “Why don’t you go work a puzzle?” and off he would go without another thought. The aggravation when I get to the end of the day, tuck all the children in bed, and faced the 15 puzzles in the living room, the table, and under the table. Perhaps we should have worked on picking up the puzzles, but that would have endangered the pure pleasure of this activity.
The obsession has past, however. He still will work them, but not with the same appetite. And now, if asked, he will put them away (usually). Here’s a video.
