We've been making some strides lately that were worthy of rewards and it was 70 degrees in NY in February so we let the boys have lollipops as big as their heads today. We figured if they got messy (ha! IF?!?!) we could just throw them right into the tub.
The four year old gave a solid five licks and asked to save it for later so he could move on to baseball.
But the not-yet-two-year-old? He SAVORED that "pop-pop" and thought it was just about the best thing ever.
I'm such a sucker for a messy-faced kid until he wanted to climb all over me with those sticky little hands and cheeks! Needless to say, they're fast asleep tonight and I'm doing laundry! Days like these are absolutely worth it ◡̈
