Bubbles are so fascinating! My girls love to blow, pop and chase bubbles. We bought a bubble machine and it keeps them entertained for hours! Even as an adult I think bubbles are fun and mysterious. Where do all the bubbles float to? Why are some so colorful and others clear?
Now that school is almost out, one more day to go! We will certainly have to invest in some more bubbles. Does any one have the trick to making your own? We tried but they didn't come out nearly as good as the store bought ones.
Marianna was chasing the bubbles and stopped to ask me, "Mama, wouldn't it be cool if we could float away on a bubble?" Yes, indeed it would be, but where would you go? Would you want to be in control or just float to wherever the bubble landed?
Some days I feel like keeping my girls in a bubble and protecting them from the world. If you really think about it though, bubbles are not very secure, they pop and break so easily. I don't know if it's because Sofia will be two in a few days and she is our last "baby" or if I am becoming more protective because of society.
I feel as if everyone expects children to grow up so quickly. My husband and I are all about teaching our girls to be responsible, but at the same time we want them to be little girls as long as they can. Before we know it, they will have many responsibilities and will be all grown up.
For now and especially with my Sofia...I DO want to keep her in a bubble just for a little while. My sweet, loving, little girl who wants to hug and kiss again & again. No need to grow so fast, let's sit together and watch the bubbles float.
