Messy Fun

The thrill of fabric is not lost on my son. He just has a different spin on it!
Today was rainy, again, and we were in the house, again....so, the scrap bucket came out.

Who knew it would be so much fun?

Not me! He had more fun than i anticipated. I brought it out for my baby niece but she was scared of the fabric and the noisy 4 year old in combination. When he(and Avery) started throwing it around i thought about saying no, but they were having so much fun and i really want to be a better "yes" mom ( I have been thinking about this and have lately been inspired by this post on this lovely blog, mommycoddle) that i let them do it on the condition that they clean it all up.


There was much whining, and it was not easy but it did get cleaned up.

I love the pics of the fabric in mid-air.
Being a "yes" mom is a good thing.

This is pretty cute! I always have the urge to do that to my scrap bucket but as an adult, I can't justify making the mess. Maybe I need a 4 year old in my house!

You are a really cool mom, dear friend. You inspire me to put more time and thought into creativity...

Oh my, I my blood pressure rose just looking at the photos of the floor. But you are truly a good mom--I love how creative you allow them to be!
