For the past week or so, Audrey has been pretending to blow bubbles. She'll pick a toy that has nothing to do with bubbles (like her recorder, for example), go through the motions of dipping a wand into a container of bubble solution, blowing on it, and then watching the pretend bubbles blow up into the sky (usually with accompanying exclamations like, 'Look, Mama! Look, look, it's bubbles in the sky!).

So this morning, on our daily outing-before-it-gets-too-hot, we cracked out the real bubbles, and oh, how she did love them...

Sadly, the yellow bottle of bubbles AND the orange outfit met their demise very early in the bubble experience, so we had a short reprieve for a bit of washing off and a wardrobe change...

Talk about a sticky mess! But so worth it. Once it warmed up into the uncomfortable and the breeze stopped blowing, we retired to our air-conditioned living room to read and make lunch. While Mama tried to focus on Dr. Seuss or The Three Little Pigs, the only thing Audrey wanted to talk about was bubbles, bubbles, and more bubbles. I suspect she may steer dinner conversation that way, too. If only adults could find excitement in life like this toddler finds in a bottle of soapy solution and a flimsy plastic wand!
