Oh, those kids.
“No, child. You cannot watch tv.”
Think fast. They need something to do. Something low tech, cuz you’re not in the mood to have a big messy ordeal.
Painting with water.
Thanks to mom for this idea. I have fond memories sitting on the patio out back when it was sweltering-hot back in Virginia. Out there with a plate of water and the paintbrushes. It was so hot, I remember watching the line I was drawing literally evaporate before I had finished drawing it. The fade was fascinating and I know now that it gave mom 20 minutes. It’s not so hot out here, but it’s keeping lil Huck occupied for sure.
