Hahahohohohaha. That was a good story. Definitely couldn’t turn out badly.
Anyhoo – here’s an update. The bean bin was seriously toddler crack. I hid it in the entryway so it was out of reach. But every day, without fail, Henry knocked on that front door demanding I bring out the bean bin.It was still a bit messy, but with just Henry playing, it was manageable. We played for many hours with this bin in the past month. It was, by far, the most popular activity we have at the house. But it was time to get rid of the beans. I was finding beans inside books, in the bathroom, in Henry’s diaper. (Not kidding.)
So Henry and I took out all the beans and added pom-poms, balls and blocks.
Less messy. Still fun.
Henry’s been loving scooping the pom-poms and putting them into his dump truck. And all the different sized balls are always winners.
Henry continues to enjoy the new and improved tub. And I can find other ways to fill my time than picking up dried beans.
