Entertaining the wild one

    Most days are whirl wind of craziness when Terror is home. He has not adjusted well to the new baby and wants to be up in mommies arms for 'huggies' any time the baby is near, awake and needs to be fed. Which as much as I would love to hug him all day its not possible when you have a newborn around who needs you. One of my go to activities that keeps him busy for at least 45 minutes is giving his toys a 'bath'. I line up all his and his brothers cars, all action figures and basically any toy that can go in the water, fill one side of the sink with major bubbles and a little water, the other side with just water, pull a chair up to the sink and let him 'wash' his toys.

I usually put down a towel on the floor as well under the chair and a towel across the front of the sink to try and help catch a bit of the water he splashes everywhere. This is one of our favorite activities in the winter. Its also a go to activity when his big brother Ace is outside in the back having so much fun with his friends and Terror has to stay inside which always causes a tantrum. So we break out the toy 'bath'!
   Its also a great way to clean a lot of your toys and remove germs. Everyone gets 'washed' and then put on a towel on the counter to dry. Even Mater gets a bath!
