It's always fun to see what captures my son's interest.

Boxes of tea, shoes, the Law and Order: SVU theme song. It's not always predictive and it might not be the same from day to day. Lately he has been really into bubbles.

Pasha first encountered bubbles at the library, which finishes out baby story time with touchable bubbles that the more mobile kids can "catch" by crawling around the area. As he has become more adventurous these bubbles have become more and more exciting for him.

I mentioned this on Facebook and so when my mother-in-law came to visit this weekend she brought a small bubble machine with her. Oh boy but did we have fun.

The thing about bubbles as opposed to a lot of the other things Pasha has obsessed over (a book that plays "Frosty the Snowman" when you press the button) is that they are a lot of fun for all of us. It gives us an excuse to all go outside and play together. The weather has turned for the warmer and everyone has started to come out of their homes to soak it up before the crush of summer is upon us. We've never lived in a neighborhood, but it seems sending bubbles floating into the neighbors' backyard is an easy way to spark conversation and establish friendships.

Plus they're just so pretty!

What little things are bringing you joy this Monday?
