Aili’s favourite recent pasttime is taking things out of containers and putting them into other containers. We thought this was a perfect opportunity to get her to help out around the house: crack open the pumpkin, give her a bowl, and she’d take all the innards out for us.
What it ended up being was … you guessed it: a gigantic mess!
So what are you scooping out of there, Mommy?
Aili was not around for the carving part. For some reason this year I chose a design that did not have a single straight edge, which probably wasn’t the best decision for someone who has the limited patience that I do. But it actually turned out ok, don’t you think?
