they're still growing.

these grow your own animals we found in the $1 bin at michael's have been the most entertaining gift we've ever given the kids. most of the grow in water toys are pretty worthless and not even slightly entertaining, but these have broken all previous negative thoughts about such toys.

they started small, like palm size.

and then graduated to my largest soup pot.

then to the jacuzzi tub.

and then they met some friends.

and then i stopped taking pictures of them. even though the girls stop what they are doing at least a dozen times and almost get more excited than they were on Christmas morning, and run down as fast as they can to go check on their growth.

that's what's happening in my neck of the woods. along with strep throat. and pink eye. and pluggin away on CHA samples and class tutorials. oh, and we can't forget all the meltdowns and sibling squabbles. *sigh* i'm ready for a normal routine again.

  1. When I was teaching preschool I would bring one of those "grow things" into the classroom on occassion. The children were always fascinated.

  2. This is too funny....we currently have one of these growing alligators in our bathtub (also purchased at Michael's). When you take them out they shrink back to a small size and you can use them over and over and over (will this thing ever leave?????)

  3. The grow things are always a hit at our house. They had some of spiderman "floating" around out there somewhere that a certain someone you know might enjoy!

    And I can so relate to the sibling thing. I think I've said "Please keep your hands to yourself" at least 70 million billion times in the last two weeks. And on the other hand I'm feeling a little weepy that everyone has to go back to the "normal" next week...

  7. Oh those tings are horrible! The boys got some at the store. We had the starfish too.

    After a while, they get all slimy & goopy.
    Blech.
