I'm sure I've mentioned before that Colin works long hours, finishing at 7pm most nights, so he gets home just in time to bath the boys & help put them to bed. I often count down the minutes after dinner to when he'll be home, we all really look forward to it, especially after a hard day. So you can imagine my dismay last week, when I realised at 7:30 that it was his 'late night' and he wouldn't be home for another hour. Sad face. It had been 'one of those days' too, so I decided a long bath was in order. For the boys, unfortunately not for me! I grabbed a bottle of blue food colouring, some HappyLand pirates, gold doubloons and jewels from our pirate box, and some accessories. The boys loved their pirate bath, Daniel found some fish to add and I found a Tupperware box to use as a treasure chest. Joshua spent about 20 minutes playing with the food colouring bottle, taking the lid on and off, and immediately wanted all the jewels round his neck. Daniel entertained himself for half an hour, not wanting to get out because he was having too much fun!

Lots of Love
