A few weeks ago, the girls got some little mermaids in a birthday party gift bag (thank you Andrea and Emma Lael!) that they have been playing with in the tub. Well, on a recent trip to the dollar store, we found some more, and the girls were so excited to have some friends for their mermaids. Armed with buckets, shells and a few other props supplied by Mommy, they happily played mermaids for at least an hour....oh glorious hour of sweet, contented play, which gave me time to not only clean their rooms, but the whole upstairs. Uninterrupted. In peace. Without requests for snacks, or me refereeing disagreements. In other words...BLISS. Here is the proof:
That was possibly the best investment of a dollar I have ever made, and one of the best ideas this Mommy has had in awhile. We will definitely be doing this again!
