Since outside play was out of the question, we had a tea party, a first for him.
He said, "What's this?" a lot.
As is usual, the thrill is the pouring and pouring, and pouring.
If you are younger than 3 or have had no tea party experience, then the tableclothis always a thick towel and the rug underneath the same.
I practice the mantra, "Stop when you get to the top," over and over. While they learn it quickly and say it as they pour, they don't stop. Finally, I just gave him multiple cups to pour to his heart's content.
Of course, we had to do all the other usual things. Play cars, play Legos, watch the Helicopter video whilst clutching a helicopter, visit the bunny boys, go on the back porch for a popsicle, and watch slide shows of him on the computer to the tune of "Can you Canoe?"
Hereafter, another tea party will likely be added to his line-up. Wonder how many tea parties I've had?
I've felt more like myself this weekend than any other day this past four weeks. While, unfortunately I still have some lingering issues, I was actually able to spend most of yesterday and today up and busy.
Thank you Lord.
