Does this look like fun?
hmmmm…in my eyes, NO! In Drew’s eyes, Yes.
I was doing the laundry today and blogging. You know…minding my own business.
Drew said, “I’m going to make a snow angel.” I said, “OK.”
He was quiet, playing for a long time. I was still minding my own business. Just like he was.
He goes outside and gets a shovel from the sandbox. He brings it inside the house. I tell him to go wash it off in the sink. Gasp!! Normally I wouldn’t even let it come close to my back door. You know, since outside toys are outside toys. But today, I’m minding my own business. Oh yeah, and so is he.
Who knows how much time had passed by, but I eventually walked through the living room to find his beautiful snow angel.
Why does he look mad at me?
This picture doesn’t even do justice. This was only half the mess. Notice that the jar is halfway full? It was pretty much empty when I found him. I will give him credit though. He was doing a nice job cleaning it up with the shovel from the sandbox. I had plenty of time to think while I was helping him clean up this tedious mess. After a while, I decided to get my camera and document. This was an annoying thing, not really any fun, but this is our life. As annoying as it is sometimes. Especially considering I spent Ady’s naptime cleaning it all up. Which happened to be a good thing. She is get much more mobile and Drew is always playing right by her. It would have been bad, bad, bad if she was around during this.
This little toy from Ikea has been hours of entertainment for my kids, so I salvaged most of them. Eventually I said to heck with these little creatures. The rest of them are now living in my vacuum. Because I was done.
And then I had an ice cold Coke. Because that makes everything better!
