Today we had an at home day and spent it playing in the sun! CJ’s favourite game was taking the water from one bird bath to the other and then adding dirt from the pot plants. There was a lot of mixing, splashing and giggling.

I know I should have stopped him, as poor Pixel normally drinks from the bird bath that was being used as a mixing bowl, however it is really the first time that CJ has shown any interest in getting dirty. Usually as soon as his hands get dirty he wants them cleaned, so I was keen to encourage this “messy” play.

Think I will go and research water and sand tables as that might save poor pixels favourite drinking bowl!
