Saturday morning I finally went yard saling. I have set the alarm for yard saling several Saturday mornings but never actually made it out of bed. I took along a "navigator" and we probably hit about 25ish sales. I found a shelf for DVD tapes, which was actually on the shopping list, a book, and lots of odds & ends crafting supplies. It was a good morning... actually turned into afternoon with a Target stop and working together on the blog.
Cameron & I watched a couple of movies over the weekend.
While I was making the cake this morning, I distracted Benjamin with ice, bowls, and a spoon!
I got this idea from Kelly's Blog a while ago and it has worked wonderfully as a way to distract and entertain Benjamin the few times I tried it. The game? Simple. Fill one bowl with ice, give him a slotted spoon, and model moving ice from one bowl to the next. It's fun to watch to how the game grows with the new discoveries of age. "Water" is a common word for him now and he was amazed when he left the bowls for a while and came back to find water. He also chose to use the empty bowl for a hat and parade around the kitchen each time before refilling it, and would try to get more ice from the fridge himself.
