Yet another fun activity inspired by something I saw going around the internet. A large meme with things cool parents had done. As soon as I saw the picture of the sign in a bowl of water balloons and water guns saying something to the effect of “im armed come and find me, love Mom” I knew this one had to be done. Being kind of spontaneous I decided to get this one together 45 minutes before I had to pick my son up from school! Little Star and I rushed to the dollarstore for supplies and then rushed home to fill water shooters and balloons. This is what we came up with.
An epic battle was had, with squeals of delight, shrieks of shock and uncontrollable joy. It was simply perfect. To be able to soak mommy was an excellent treat for my littles. I may have gotten a little too much pleasure from soaking them as well. Really, if you have never had a full out, no time limit water fight with your children, do it this weekend. Do it tomorrow after school. Do it now. The act of being able to just let go and not worry about “getting into trouble” is so cleansing for both you and them.
After the battle we took a little break to blow bubbles. Bubbles are as great now as they were when I was a child.
On this day, for my kids, I was the coolest mom ever!
