Happy St. Patrick's Day!
Last week I was surprised by my family with a get-together (at my house). So I had some of my grandkids together. (all the 2 year olds) It was fun to watch them play together.
I have to say tho....that one forgets things. (That would be me)
I had been working on making one of the spare bedrooms a kids room, and I had bought a plastic, over the door shoe rack (the kind with pouches for the shoes) and I hung it on the wall and organized crayons, fat in one, thin in another, markers in one, colored pencils, scissors, paint, paint brushes, glue sticks....all in their own little pouches, to be taken out one at a time when used on the new color books and construction paper I had also purchased.
I was so excited and proud of myself for having such a neat way to organize the craft projects (I found it on pinterest)....silly me.
3 2 1/2 year olds. Three two and a half year olds.
yeah, about that crayon organizer? It was empty in less than 2 minutes. All the crayons, pencils, markers etc in a Lego bucket being brought down the stairs. Crayons held in little hands just itching to draw on the walls, scissors hankering to get into a cousins hair, watercolor paints aiming for the kitchen cabinets.
You get the picture.
We had to gather all the supplies and put them out of reach. We were not popular for a while.
But then.....Granddad ( you know him as the Handyman) took them outside and all was forgiven. And once in the garage, their gambling addiction took over and the bells and whistles of our slot machine held their interest. (its their favorite thing ever).
We had the best time.
