I was scrolling through some creative posts in a FB group & saw a young mom’s documentation of cereal play with her young children. I was immediately inspired.
Her words stuck with me…
“They are only little once… and cheerios can be cleaned up”
So… I decided yesterday’s “snow” day was the perfect time to experiment with cheerios.
We scooped. We poured. We swept. We balanced. We stomped. We pushed. We counted. We laughed.. a lot! Oh and every now and then Jude chose to have a taste. haha! The memory was perfect & he even helped clean it up when we were finished.
Every now and then I am in some way reminded that my kiddos won’t be this little one day…. that while this little, playing is the best form of learning. So letting go & just being in the moment just needs to happen.
..Here’s to Jude’s giggles yesterday, they completely eliminated any thought of the mess we made!
