That is what my mom always said. If you give a child a balloon, one of two things are going to happen. Either it is going to pop, or it is going to float away. Either way, you are going to end up with a child in tears. Don't I know that!!
Well, there is one consequence that I had not considered. The boys each got a balloon at a birthday party that they went to on Saturday. My kids LOVE balloons and they keep them FOREVER!! It is so annoying. They, like, play with them and name them after they are deflated and don't float anymore...WEIRD!! So, of course, the balloons from Saturday have seen better days by now.
Yesterday, Ben colored his with a marker. Awwwww, isn't that cute...whatever!
Everyone knows that markers don't really dry on balloons. Well, Charlie was playing upstairs nicely while I was making beds a few minutes ago. He apparently really, really, REALLY liked Ben's balloon!! LOL!!
