The other day (okay, more than the other day, it was before Christmas) I let the boys play with .... moon sand. It was something Ajay got as a Christmas gift a couple of years ago and I had never been brave enough to open it to be played with. I finally opened it with the hopes that it wouldn't be as messy as I had feared. It was. And since Biju would prefer that I don't vacuum while I'm pregnant, I put the little mess-makers to work and had them do the dirty work!
I think they had as much fun cleaning as they did playing!
