So I’m not going to get all GLOBAL WARMING IS REAL YA’LL on you – but have you noticed that the past few years, we’ve had very little spring? As in, one day it’s March and raining and cold, and the next day feels like the middle of August, all hot and muggy and gross and you feel like you missed spring?
Is that just me?
Anyway – tonight was a spring-like evening. Very bright and mild. We had a nice dinner, where the Big Girl ACTUALLY ATE FOOD and the Little Girl wasn’t screaming like a maniac – and there was enough daylight left to go outside and play!! And there is one thing that never fails to keep everyone entertained, one thing that makes both girls shriek with joy, one thing that never gets old: BUBBLES.
I wish I videoed it. I wish I could remember to get out the little camera-thing in the middle of a massive two-baby giggle-fest with bubbles everywhere. But I don’t. I just enjoy it.
But seriously, bubbles. Everyone loves bubbles.
So now, my two magic moves in parenting:
1. When in doubt – take their socks off. It distracts them and calms you down. What’s cuter than baby feet?
2. When in doubt – bring on the bubbles. It distracts them and calms you down. Seriously, don’t you love bubbles?
