I have seen a ton of people do cute indoor activites with their kids that were sensory related, but never thought I could handle the mess. Most people used rice, until I saw Ashley using dried beans. It was great! He had a good time using the measuring cup and was very proud of himself when he learned how to turn it over to dump it out. He got a little frustrated when he couldn't scoop them up very quickly (this child lacks patience), but we are working on that :)
What cracked me up the most was if one fell on the ground he would say "mee uk" (clean up) and put it in the container! I so hope he stays like that!
He started doing the sweetest thing yesterday. He started calling me Mommy!!! It just melts my heart everytime I hear it!
I am sitting outside while I write this and Connor is playing an array of sports around me. The breeze is blowing and it is moments like these that I swear we'll never leave Tennessee. Especially after being in that sweltering Arkansas weather last week. I read a lot of blogs who are from Texas and I just don't think I could do it either. I really did think it was hot here until I went back home. Boy was I wrong!!!
Matt and I are going on a date tonight (that makes the 2nd one this month.. I like this!). We are going to grab a pizza from Pizza Hut, because that is what I wanted, and going to see The Help! I CANNOT WAIT!!!! I so hope I don't have too high of expectations.. we'll see! Hope y'all have a great Friday night!
