Simple Things...

Give a relaxing foot massage for one kid while the other is indulging in a much-anticipated warm bath. Check.

Switch the kids and do the same as above. Check.

Help one of them bake a cake for making cake pops for MLK Jr. day. Check.

Help the other make a book about If Planets Were Animals. Check. (In case you were wondering... Mercury is an Endoceras. Venus is an Amoeba. Earth is a Blue Jay... all the way to the 16 planets including Quaoar)

Hover around and take pictures when the said cake pops were being made quite independently. Check.




Stream in youtube on the TV, cuddle together and watch this, this, this, this, and this for starters. Check.

Turn on this, this, this, and dance like crazy. Check.

Have a picnic tea party with the kids in the backyard to enjoy the rare sun on a wintry day. Check.

Watch as one kid worked on a special treat for the picnic tea party. Check.




Drool at the finished treat as I take pictures. Check.



A two-mile hike with one kid. Check.

A two-mile hike with the other kid the next day. Check.

Set the timer, take turns and see how many Amazing Breaker levels each of us can complete within the allotted time. Check.

Make half-a-dozen little jars of colorful flavorful lip balm with one kid. Check.



Watch the plump little busy birds in our backyard with the other kid. Check.



Paint the toe nails blue for one kid. Check.

Paint the toe nails in a 2-color pattern for the other kid. Check.

Tuck the kids in bed after a 3-day weekend and write a post here. Check.

Sounds like a fun filled check list and as usual got many ideas from your post. Picnic treats looks awesome.

Praba::Thanks, P, will let Ana know - as of last tally, the girl wants to be a baker and a candy-maker when she is older...

Vibha::Thanks, Vibs! I was wondering where the 3-day weekend went as it looked like we did nothing... but then when I started listing a few of the things that did happen, it was therapeutic for me :)
