It's D-day

Hey All. Welcome to wet, drippy Wisconsin--pretty typical for March, but getting old pretty fast!
This weekend it's been constant rain, which makes me feel personally wet and drippy too. Even the little things become irritating more quickly. The kids are going crazy caged inside, but you can't even brave the cold and take a walk, it's just too wet. :(

In other notes, I've noticed on my ClustrMap that there are seemingly new readers to our little blog. Welcome! I'd love to hear who you are in addition to seeing your little red dot on my map. :)
So, since it's a slow day and not much is going on and since I always love to hear "Aha" ideas for what to do with my kiddos when they're driving us and themselves wild, let's make it D-day. De-lurking day for all you browsers out there. Leave a comment and let me know your best tip for a rainy day (especially with two little ones, including a bouncing-off-the-walls-3-year-old) or just let me know that you're reading. Either way it'll brighten my day, because comments on here always make my day more interesting! And if you're one of my "faithful" readers, give me your best tips too, I don't think I can ever get an aresenal of we're-stuck-inside ideas that's too large.
And for those of you who read this blog exclusively for the photos, here are my sweet babies, who make me smile, even when it's rainy!

If it's wet outside, try the same thing inside -- put swimsuits on the kids and toss them in a swimming-pool-temperature bathtub. Sometimes I can even get part of the bathroom clean that way...

Hope your day is sunshiny soon! :)

I have to say that I always enjoyed building forts. Confession: Still do. They are a great way to do routine things with a twist. Take a nap in the fort, read in the tent, go on a picnic in doors. :-)

I LOVE the tent idea. We color. And the girls love to dance so it's always easy to just turn on music and dance around with them. They think it's hilarious to see me dancing and jumping around. :) This even keeps them happy and entertained if I'm washing dishes or cooking dinner. Ella loves dressing up lately too. All the hats we have, scarves, gloves. She dresses each of us, lol. Books too. Ella can be happy for hours with books. Or some sort of craft...although I don't have any specific ideas for that.
