LL did about 45 minutes of room time while Cooper took a nap. When I went in to get her, this is what I found. She had made a HUGE mess, but was so quiet, playing by herself, and having so much fun. We played for a while and saved the clean up for later in the day. :)
One of the hardest times to entertain Cooper is right before lunch. Usually, while I'm trying to fix lunch for everyone, he would decide to get very fussy and clingy. One of my usual options was to open our tupperware cabinet and let him play. This day, he found a box of spoons, and before I knew it, they were everywhere! He was in HEAVEN and I couldn't do anything but smile and take some pics. :)
Look at the joy on this little face!!
Sometimes, making the mess (and enjoying it while it's there) is so much more fun than having a clean house!
