Can't win!

I was motivated by Heather. She has been organizing her house and making it very homeschool friendly. I have been feeling cramped in our little home and I wanted to make some room for my new baby. I feel my house is getting smaller. It was small to start with and we will be a family of 5 in just a few weeks. I took a quick look around and thought I would start by tossing out some stuff I made for the children to play with and they no longer use. I was happy to have a little extra room after clearing out some of the stuff I thought was just taking up space. A few days go by and I take a visit over to Kate's blog and I see pictures of her daughter having a fun busy week. One of the pictures are of her daughter making discovery bottles. My son sees the picture and asks what the girl is doing in the picture. I said she is making discovery bottles. He then said that he NEEDS to make some up for him and his sister to play with! I told him I had just tossed out the bottles we had because nobody used them anymore. When I told T. this he said that he didn't like the ones we had because HE didn't get to make them like the girl on the computer did AND because I didn't let him use red glitter! He said he thinks he sees red glitter in that bottle and that would have made them more fun! He said one like that girl is making would be very fancy for his sister to play with! I can't tell from the picture what is in the bottle I told him he would have to be patient and wait to see if Kate writes again on her blog about it. Kate if you are reading this I plan on writing you and asking you how you made the bottles I am just trying to hold off long enough to collect some empty bottles to do this. He does NOT want me to look up online for ideas. He wants his to be made special just like your daughters. He thinks hers are the very special ones! I think he is saying that because she is not an adult and got to add the stuff herself they are more fun. He will be OK with it if she doesn't have red glitter but he might ask you to see a picture of your daughter with her finished bottles. LOL! I often can find empty soda bottles in my husbands car (he has 1 hour drive to work and gets a soda along the way) but until I have a few bottles I am making T. wait for Kate's instructions. If he knows how the little girl on the computer made hers before I have some bottles he will drive me nuts! I am now thinking if I would have held on to the bottles for just a few more days I could have dumped out the ones we had and made new ones (fancy ones like Kate lets her daughter make). I guess one of my future projects will be letting the children make discovery bottles.

I do not know if this will help but I have made some discovery bottles. I have some different ones. There are I Spy ones, ocean ones, glitter ones, and bubble ones. I can post some pictures on mine if you want. Just let me know.
