For anyone who knows me or has read my blog for a while, I've written how I absolutely LOVE Pro D Days. I know for working moms they are a bit of a nightmare, having to find childcare, etc, but for a SAHM like myself, who works 3 nights out of the week, NOT having to rush around making a lunch, getting 'lil dudes dressed, washed and out the door before 9...well, it's my dream come true. (One of them anyways.)
So today was a day of not rushing...no urgent plans...a stay-in-our-jammies-'til-noon kind of day. We'd go where the wind took us.
After lunch I thought it would be fun to head out into the garden. Usually when we do this, Big T brings his cars and Little K and I do some diggin'. We haven't planted anything yet; we're just pulling up weeds and making a 'lil bamboo fence. Basically we just putter around.
Today I decided that we wouldn't dig.
We'd paint rocks!
Last year I brought home a lot of big rocks from the beach. Forever looking for something to do with the boys that doesn't involve a Wii, an iPad or an iPhone, I thought painting rocks would be a lot of fun.
And it was. (Ha! You thought a disaster would ensue, I'm sure)
It's a great activity and you don't have to be an artist, as you will see when you look at the following:
Okay, so I did most of the painting.
As expected, Big T played with his cars and Little K painted maybe three rocks, then he wanted the iPad. Oh, well, what's the saying? "A" for effort? No, that can't be it. Well, you know what I mean.
So if it's not raining, you're gonna lose your mind if you watch one more Dora cartoon and your Play-doh's all dried up...
Let 'Em Paint Rocks!
