We share our block of units with another family who have 4 children, a set of twin boys who are 1 year older than Ruby and 2 girls aged 5 & 7. Ruby adores all of them and I think she’d give her left leg to pack her bags and move into their place. Being an only child, there couldn’t be anything more exciting than the chaos and excitement at their house.

Nothing seems to elicit quite the level of delighted squealing as bubbles! Got grumpy kids? Kids driving you crazy? Whinging? Take them outside and blow some bubbles, trust me the mood will change. If nothing else, they will usually run around like maniacs trying to pop all the bubbles and will blow off some steam so they’re at least getting some exercise. Now that Ruby is finally old enough to start blowing bubbles herself without either drinking them or just tipping the mixture upside down, its even more exciting!

I bought a giant bottle of bubbles and some bubble wands for all the kiddies for Christmas at a dollar store and we finally had a chance to use them yesterday.   Here are a few pictures of the resulting fun…
