One of the things I love about young children is that small, cheap, 5 minute activities can be the thrill of their life. It is so easy to please my girls! Catherine has had kind of a rough day because she has an impaction in her colon so we had to give her an enema. We have to literally hold her down, etc. It is a traumatic experience and I am so glad that next week we will have a better solution after her surgery.
As a result of the need to try to relieve this impaction, we had to miss Wednesday night church. When I told Catherine, she just bawled. Then Sabrina wanted to join me in the jacuzzi bathtub. Catherine wanted to also, but we couldn't let her because of fecal leakage. Again, she bawled.
So, I suggested we do a really fun thing and play with sparklers on the deck. We have never done this before, but Catherine thought the idea was "awesome." Again, she had no idea what I was talking about, but had concluded it was "awesome." I wish I was so positive about the unknown.
We let Catherine go first. We have actually had these sparklers for months. I have no idea where we got them, but they were the super long kind. We felt like they would be safe enough for our little kids. The girls had a blast. We only had 6 sparklers, so this thrill was short-lived.
