I thought about it a lot this spring when the weather was so nice, but Tyler was in the middle of a huge put-everything-in-reach-into-mouth phase and I just didn't feel like feeding him a diet of sand.
Or standing watch over him so he wouldn't eat the sand.
All that to say, as of this week... we are back in the sand!
As expected, Tyler loves it! And - yay! - as far as I know, he hasn't eaten a lick!
Handy sandbox tip: In case you haven't noticed, sand sticks to hot sweaty bodies. Instead of your kids hosing each other off when they are done playing in the sand (my big boys' preferred method) you can meet them at the door with a sprinkling of baby powder. Sprinkle on, rub in, and the sand falls away easily! And stays outside instead of in!
Do you have a backyard sandbox?
