first the messy part:
my sister-in-law was a preschool teacher for years and has all these really fun ideas for little ones.
whereas my fun ideas are more like, “hey! let’s clean the potty!”
but she had told me about playing with shaving cream, and how fun it was for kids.
she suggested adding a couple drops of food coloring, but i decided plain white was messy enough.
so i rounded up a couple cans of $1.39 barbasol from walmart, a couple cookie sheets, and we were good to go.
we invited henry to come join in on the fun.
little did i know the sweet boy is not a huge fan of messy,
but he willingly dove in after silas basically forced him.
once the girls got in on it all craziness broke loose.
apparently tactile projects are not stimulating for older kids.
they are just boring.
but what is fun is rubbing anything messy all over your body, clothes, and hair.
i was very thankful to put the outdoor shower to use.
and so were the kids, ’cause you know i’m willing to get out the hose to spray them off!
so here’s my encouragement for the day:
let your kids get messy.
it won’t kill you and they’ll think you are the coolest.
and now for what i wore wednesday!
this was again a bad week!
i’m going to blame it on swim lessons in the middle of the day and the fog not breaking up until afternoon everyday.
who wants to dress cute for the pool, in the fog?
sweats were my go-to outfit of choice most days, so i basically avoided the camera for the most part.
oh look! i got dressed!
cardi – old navy
shirt (supposed to be a dress that shrank) – old navy
leggings – walmart
flats – target
scarf – forever21
scarf – forever21
glasses – target
(i see now that my mirror is reeeeally dirty. but cleaning it would require, um, effort so there’s a pretty good chance that it’ll look the same – or worse – next week. keepin’ it real.)
ok, its not nice to laugh!
my husband is big into cycling so i thought what better way to connect than to go with him.
we borrowed a friend’s tandem road bike and went on a little (ahem) 30 mile ride.
it was awesome!
until the next day when i wanted to cry when i tried to move.
tank top – target
super hot padded bike shorts – onesource cycling
running shoes – because i’m not cool enough yet to have bike shoes.
and here’s my reality, why i started wiww in the first place –
so i wouldn’t dress like this!!!
oh well. when people ask how i do it all, clearly you can see now that i don’t!
sweatshirt – target
tank – target
hat – ???
sweats – forever21
shoes – payless
thank you so much to all of you who have been linking up with me!
i have so much fun seeing what everyone else is wearing!
i think last week we had over 30 people join in – wow!
