All sorts of fun

Well, we love the Berenstein Bears around our house. There is an episode where Papa Bear and the kids strap scrub brushes to their feet to mop the kitchen floor. Jack has always thought that was a brilliant idea and begs me to try it. So we finally had our mopping party. And let me tell ya, it was a blast. I put soap all over the floor and turned the radio up really loud, and we had a ball with our scrub brush skates. We were laughing SO hard. I highly recommend it to anyone.

I told you already that you are the best mom ever cause you let him do that. I can just see the two of you! I love it! I like the new look of your blog. You got boogers!

Ooh, great thinkin', Jack! I will have to try that!

Sounds like lots of fun! (P.S. what happened to your bicycling in january post?)

What a fun mom you are, I already knew that! Where did you get this great invention?

Jackster is getting so big, look at those feet!

Aw, Bec, I've said it before, I'll say it again, you are such a great mom. I think I'm gonna strap some scrubbers on Henry's feet and see if I can't get him to contribute to the mess-reduction effort around here rather than his usual mess-production crusade.

Oh my heck, you are the cutest mom EVER! And hooray for public television, I guess?

Fun, fun, fun! I like to think that I'm the mom who when their child drops the full gallon of milk on the floor says, "Hey let get our swimming suits on and splash around awhile! No use letting all this milk go to waste!" Good work, Bec. You inspire the "fun mom" in all of us.

I'm laughing right now! About ten minutes before I checked your blog I thought, "Hmmm, I think it's time to change my blog color..." and I did...to the EXACT color you chose for yours. Great minds really do think alike :)

you are every kids dream mom. You are going to be the cool mom in high school. So fun!

I remember that episode. Those Bears have such fun together. I have to say I'm not a fun Mom presently-thanks for the reminder.

Wow! David's way too little to do anything like that for years, but it sounds fun enough that I should try it on my own!
