shaving cream mAdnESs!

Do you ever have an idea that sounds great in your head but then doesn't turn out as pretty?  That's kind of what happened today.

My sole intention with the shaving cream was to have Connar have a new, fun way of practicing writing the letter "E".  He did that....for about 2 minutes and then got lost in squishing the shaving cream in between his fingers ("It's soft. Like a cloud!") and giving himself a beard.

Although the activity didn't end up being centered around a school activity with the letter we're studying right now, it turned out to be a fun experience for him playing with a new texture.  I'm not gonna lie, it was a hot mess...BUT I'd do it again in a heartbeat to see the smile on his face.  :)

As you look through the following sequence of pictures, notice how the shaving cream starts on his finger tips, moves up to his elbows, up near his armpits, and eventually to his chin.  Hilarious!

  1. That is just too funny. One of the best things about kids is that no matter what your mood, they can always cheer you up and make you laugh by doing something "childish". I love it.
