Will and Guillermo conquer the living room.
Maya breaks out of her pillow jail.
We played guard and astronaut most of the week. And puzzles, Maya loves puzzles, especially the wooden ones with little knobs she can hold.
We also painted with pudding. I was pretty excited for this one. I have vague memories of doing this when I was little. Guillermo and Maya sort of ruined it for me, though. They didn't want to get dirty. Instead of sticking their freshly washed hands in bowls full of chocolate and lemon pudding, they instead chose a cleaner route. They painted with popsicle sticks. I didn't even have to clean Maya's hands when she finished the project. Guillermo was a little messier, but not much. The pictures aren't even worth sharing.
Last night we played viking. Guillermo was the viking, Will was the dragon, I was the chief, and Maya was the bad princess. The game went like this: I sat on a chair and told Guillermo the mission. Then, Guillermo attacked the princess (gently) and Maya fell down on the ground. She would get up, run to couch, where she would pound her hands on the pillows until Will the dragon picked her up, turned her upside down, tickled her and put her in the pillow jail. Guillermo would cover her up with more pillows and then she would break free. The game went on and on and on and they never tired of it.
Feel free to stop by anytime. We'll definitely find a role for you.
