This morning Greg was feeling sad after Brian left, so I decided to cheer him up by letting him make a good old fashioned mess. I had an extra kilo of rice in the pantry that I keep just for things like weighing down empty pie crusts when I’m baking. I put it in the big green Tupperware bowl and gave Greg some spoons and cups and the whole kitchen floor in which to make a mess. Needless to say he had a grand time of it, and some good practice scooping and pouring.
And, inevitably, it ended with picking up the whole bowl and pouring it right into his lap!
