Simple Games on a Rainy Day

So it is raining.... again... and I am trying to come up with some new and exciting activity to keep my crazy, I mean active, three year old entertained, when he asks to play in the kitchen sink. He grabs his stool and announces that he is going to make waffles in the sink.  I go with it, asking what kind of waffles, maybe blueberry?  Pretty soon he is pouring water back and forth between a mason jar and a measuring cup and using a wooden spoon to stir his waffles.  This lasts about 20 minutes then I add ice to the picture and he is off again.  Sometimes I have to be reminded how simple it really can be!

Book Review Monday

I Love You Stinky Face

by Lisa McCourt

 My son received this book as a Christmas gift from a friend this year and it has quickly become a favorite bedtime story.  It manages to be both funny and heart warming, as a mother reassures her son that she would love  and treasure him no matter if he was a meat eating dinosaur, a super smelly skunk, or a green bug eating alien.  A definite must read!
