Today, I was in the front room and I heard loud laughs and cheers from my eldest and really hearty giggles from my youngest, both of whom were in the living room.
I wondered what was happening to make them laugh so much.
When I walked in I saw that they had been in our craft drawer and emptied a FULL tub of cut up pieces of tissue paper all over the floor.
My two-year-old was scooping them up, throwing them in the air and watching them fall to the ground, to the complete amusement of her sister.
After my initial, ‘arggghh, look at the mess’ reaction, I did!!
It was much more fun joining them than it was to worry and stress about the state of the floor. We would have been cleaning up anyway, what did an extra twenty minutes or so matter? And do you know, it actually was fun!
Tissue-paper-angels anyone?! 😊😊
