The Farmer set up the water table in the basement and lugged in a bucket of snow for Sweet P yesterday. She LOVED it! We started off with bowls and an ice cream scoop and she had a ball just scooping the snow from the bucket into the table.
Random insert: Our neighbors put a perfectly good book shelf on the curb last night and I said "TAKE THIS HOME RIGHT NOW" to the Farmer (except I was a little bit nicer) while were on our walk last night. Here's how the rest of the convo went:
Him: "I'm not taking that home right now."
Me: "Why not?! Someone is going to take it!"
Him: "This thing has been here ALL day. No one is going to take it."
Me: "Fine. But if it's gone when we come back I'm going to be really mad."
...30 minutes later.
Him: "I can't see it. Someone must've picked it up."
Me: Craning my neck and straining my eyes to find it (we were still several houses down). "You better be kidding."
Him: "Oh wait. It was hiding behind that tree."
And all was right in the world. We lugged it home. He took the frame and the shelves while I lugged the backing, holding Sweet P's hand (Baby Brother was in the Ergo if you're wondering).
End random insert.
While she was playing, I decided to clean above book shelf because it was right next to where she was playing and REALLY dirty. I ran up to get the dust stuff (olive oil & vinegar in a spray bottle) and a rag. Halfway into it, Sweet P wanted my spray bottle. So I found an empty one, filled it up with water and let her go to town. (this paragraph reminds me of a "If You Give A Mouse" book.)
SO much fun. We are SO doing this again. Soon.
