I got out a can of shaving cream and invited the kids to spread it all over the table.
I read once that shaving cream was good for wood tables.
I personally think it’s highly unlikely
but my table is older than I am
and has frankly had way WORSE stuff on it than shaving cream
so it can’t complain!
The kids had a blast.
It got a wee bit messy!
And then somebody decided to climb onto the table!
Note: shaving cream is very slippery!
Alex slipped and slid like a wet fish and kept shouting whoaaaaaa!
I am terrible about saying things like
"Get down… as SOON as I take this picture!"
It was quite a mess but it cleaned up easily and it had us all in fits
of uncontrollable laughter.
And don’t rainy days just need a little uncontrollable laughter?
