In an effort to slow down, savor the moments more, and fully live the Summer months I am doing 100 days of Summer.
For me 100 days of Summer is...bubbles. Blowing bubbles, catching bubbles, stomping them with barefeet, and watching them float away into blue skies.
My son loves bubbles, always has. They bring such excitement, joy, and peace. This Summer, my son is 2 and to encourage him to try things more on his own we got him his own bucket for bubble blowing.
The bucket is small, spill resistant (so as a mom, I worry less about spills and can relax more), and comes with two wands. My son always uses the yellow one, but he is willing to share the blue one with anyone else who wants to blow bubbles.
It's so much fun to watch him blow bubbles on his own. Not that I don't like blowing bubbles myself, I just get out of breath and he still wants to keep going.
The other night, a nice blue sky and light breezy evening my son asked to blow bubbles while outside. I think that is all we did that night, bubbles. But he asked his dad to blow them with. The two had so much fun and I had just as much fun watching them.
From blowing them in all different areas of the backyard, to catching them on the wands or with hands, to stomping in the grass full of un-popped bubbles. The smiles and giggles are what Summer is all about.
