Friday was my first foray into entertaining 4 kids on my own. I’m not one of those who thinks throwing a huge kids’ birthday party sounds fun, so I like to keep it small & simple. Have a few kids over for a sleepover, & cake & call it good. I even served Lucky Charms in the morning!
Since PChad was not yet home from his trip, I decided to just give Asher 1 gift from us, but to make it something the kids could play with together if they so chose. I figured I should make a bit more of a to do about it since Asher would be getting a small gift from Jack & a smallish gift from me, & I wanted to make sure to kill some time as well.
So, I told Asher that he needed to check the dryer for me. He often unloads clothes from the dryer for me, so he figured I was sending him to do a chore, instead he found this…
And, as planned, the boys went outside (despite the rain), & played for an hour ‘til dinnertime. I call that a success!
