Sure, he was sopping wet, pretty nearly from head to toe, once we were done, but he had a blast, and I got my bread dough mixed and kneaded.
Then, I had a turkey to deal with, which meant I needed the sink. No, worries. I had a plan ...
Drain water from sink, go up to get changed into dry clothes, spot bubbles on dresser ... this is not part of the plan ... oh, well ... Downstairs, carrying the bubbles, saying/singing "bubbles, bubbles, bubbles, bubbles, bubbles, bubbles," many more times than I'm willing to write.
So, mommy took a break and we danced around the kitchen blowing and chasing bubbles and laughing.
It was at this point, that I decided that no matter what else happened, we'd had a good day. And, it was only 10 a.m.Back to the plan ...
... get some Play-doh to help.
A good nap helped, too.
And, by the end of the afternoon, the bread was baked, the turkey and some vegetables were roasted, the woodstove was cleaned out and even some laundry got done.
Later, in the evening, I even got out for some girl time.
