I started blogging back in 2008, and maintained a family blog for about a year. I’ve been revisiting some of those old posts and reminiscing about the earlier ages and stages of parenting my twins. Here’s one that made my laugh when I read it. Enjoy. 🙂
A few weeks ago, I got the idea that I could make a fun water table for the twins out of some household items. Basically, it’s just a container to hold some water and some toys for the kids to use to play with the water. What’s hard about that? I have tons of things that can hold water around the house.
I decided to use a Rubbermaid-type storage bin to hold the water. As I carried it outside, I was thinking to myself how darn smart I was to think of this idea. I was feeling like a total crafty resourceful momma. I should have known this was going to end not as I had planned once I got that crafty momma feeling. The last time I had that feeling ended in disaster… I attempted to make homemade play-do that turned out hard and crumbly.
So out we go to enjoy the sunshine and beautiful weather. I filled the tub up a bit, then turned around to put the house away. As I turned back around, this is what I saw:
At that point, I figured what the heck, let him play in the water if that’s what he wants to do. I took off his soaking wet shoes and let him go at it.
After awhile, they got thirsty and decided to have a drink. Again, I thought, what the heck. They’re kids; let them have a little fun!
While it may not have turned out as I had planned, it was still a lot of fun! Don’t worry though… I also got them a real water table that they are enjoying a lot!
