What we want is to see the child in pursuit of knowledge, and not knowledge in pursuit of the child. ~George Bernard Shaw
.... all it takes is a bit of masking tape to make the day of two little boys. Sunday I threw caution to the wind and let them loose with the tape. They asked for a zigzag line on the floor (always a favourite!) and then the rest was up to them.
I was expecting a tape chaostrophy, what usually happens. Tape everywhere including each other which always ends badly. This time, however, it resulted in a pretty complex maze of sorts. It looked like Mission Impossible in the house. Every time you wanted to go somewhere you had to either climb under and over or both to get to the next room. It was great fun for two little gnomes to watch Mom and Dad contorting to get around.
Ah, the things we do for our kids! It was all good fun though and it kept them busy almost the whole afternoon. It terrified the cat, but you can’t please everyone I suppose! So here is to living life on the edge and letting the six and three year old loose in the house with a full roll of masking tape! Yup, we’re crazy like that.
