Not all of my toddler activities come from a book. Sometimes, I manage to come up with my own ideas. Today's goal was to keep Owen's hands clean in an attempt to keep the sicky germs away from the baby. In addition to making banana bread (gotta wash hands before, during, and after) and allowing Owen to help flush both his and Josh's poops down the toilet (more hand washing), I invented the game of "GERM KILLERS."
The rules are simple: Everyone grab a Lysol Wipe (or 4) and run around the house trying to wipe off as many handles, knobs, doors, and window sills as possible. Clean hands; disinfected surfaces; 20 minutes of fun for an otherwise crabby toddler. That game's a winner. We may play every week.
And, because the theme for the rest of our day was, "Napping is for sissies," here are some recent pictures that are keeping my spirits up.
