This week my big boy is at Cub Scout Camp. Yesterday the two little ones decided they wanted to have a tea party when they woke up. I normally only let them play with the plastic tea cups and just have water and it has to be in the basement where if they spill it won’t be a problem. Yesterday, though, I decided to let them go full out.
I made a cup of decaf coffee and poured some into their mini tea pot. They put milk in the little milk pot and sugar in the sugar pot. I was worried they’d spill everywhere, but honestly, I spilled more than they did! They had a blast playing tea party for about thirty minutes and I figured, they’re only young once! Maybe I’ll even let them do this again another day. They didn’t even have one full cup of coffee between them. They were dancing and happy for a while. The rest of the day wasn’t as pleasant, but at least we had a good morning!
What do you think? Future blackmail with that one? 🙂
