The problem with bubbles is that they pop so quickly. That's an extra big problem for me, since it means lots of blowing. With PH, I run out of air long before Alex's attention span dwindles. So, when I was at Michael's recently, and Alex saw (yet another) bottle of bubbles, and begged me to buy it - - - well, I was reluctant. That is until I read the label ... these bubbles are specially formulated not to pop! (They were outside in one of the end-of-season bins.)
Since I was taken to the hospital unexpectedly (again!) and stayed a long time (again!), Alex has had a ginormous case of separation anxiety lately. The other evening I went out to dinner with some girlfriends, and left before Aaron got home from work (my mother was with the boys). Alex had a full-and-complete meltdown that lasted for ages! He was terrified that I wasn't going to come back (again!). [Dear God - please don't let this hurt him long-term!] Well, I told him that when Daddy got home from work they could go outside and play with the new bubbles. Alex was so relieved that Daddy got home, that he forgot about the bubbles, that is 'till I got home.
So, after baths, and Harrison was put to bed, the three of us traipsed outside to play Never-Ending Bubbles. They are FABULOUS!!!!! They end up making sticky, slimy fingers. And they leave an iridescent circle on the sidewalk when they do finally pop. But all it takes is a little water and it comes right off. It was probably the best $0.99 I've spent in a LONG time!
