Note: this failed to post this morning. Read as if it's 11 AM.
Anna June woke up at 2 or 3 AM and cried, "I can't open my eyes!" With all the gunk and subsequent lack of sleep (for me), I decided to go ahead and call it pinkeye and declare a sick day.
We called the pediatrician, who doesn't want to see her, but is calling something in.
Of course, she feels fine. We've already colored a picture done all the dot-to-dots in several activity books and watched the beginning of a movie. By 9:30, AJ asked to make a craft.
Luckily, I have several ideas. She rejected many, but when I showed her the bathtub paints from Pinterest, (theidearoom.blogspot.com), she was sold.
I've been wanting to do this for a while, but haven't had a time when AJ could spend an hour in the bath. Today, though, it seemed like a good idea.
AJ loved the mixing. I loved that we had all the ingredients: corn starch, baby shampoo, food coloring, and water.
She is still in the tub, with no signs of losing interest. "This is so fun," she just said. It has been over 40 minutes, and she's having a blast covering the tub with colored, bubbly paint and then erasing with various things.
Since AJ is not big enough to be trusted solo in the tub, I have been in here with her, thinking of all I should be doing, including blogging. So I decided to do it now while I have time, though the messy activity isn't yet finished.
I bet you've never had anyone live blog your bath, right?
Here are some pictures I managed to take.
