To Be a Kid Again...

The thing I'm finding that I love about being a mom, is that I can sometimes "be a kid again". I have a great excuse sometimes to sit on the floor with Emily and play with dolls and My Little Ponies (which were my favorite toy as a kid). She even has a Cabbage Patch Doll. I had one of those too! I love that a lot of the toys I grew up with are making a comeback, so I can play with them again!

The other day it was so nice and warm out, with a little bit of wind. We pulled out the dollar store bubble stuff, and found that it only made one bubble at a time. That is not fun. So, I pull out one of my many, many cookbooks and I find a recipe for bubbles. They didn't do too bad, but later I found a better recipe I can't wait to try.

So, we filled up my biggest measuring cup with water, dish soap (shampoo, bubble bath, etc.) and a bit of sugar. Dug out my melon scoop things and we kicked off our shoes and sat out behind our house and made some bubbles.

I had plenty of work that needed to be caught up or finished, but it felt so good to take an hour or so and sit out back with my girl and play!

How sweet! And I so agree that although there is plenty that needs to be done...making precious memories with the little ones is what it's all about! =]

That is so sweet! I've seen a recipe for bubbles that uses glycerine. Not sure if that helps make them stronger? I've noticed, too, that the dollar store bubbles don't work very well. I'm glad that the older toys are making a comeback! :o)

I love your pictures! We always just use dish soap to make our bubbles here.
