In on the fun.

Today I had a BIG realization. GIGANTIC, really...

I will always be helping the kids clean up ridiculous messes, so why not get in on the fun of making them?

Today we used up most of a bundle of yarn making "lasers" through the whole living room that we then had to climb through without getting burned.

After that we cut all the string into tiny pieces together. Fun with scissors! And I wasn't mad about it because I was in on it!

My favorite of today's mischief would have to be when we hung a balloon from the ceiling so that we could jump off the couch to kick it, landing in a soft mound of every-blanket-in-the-house (that I didn't even mind folding this time).

I highly recommend finding out why your kids would be willing to risk having you yell at them for making a mess, and then getting in on the fun.

The timing of this post couldn't be more appropriate - as always! The laser idea - brilliant!
