One New Thing Every Day

From the day I turned 29, I tried to do one new thing a day... it took a few extra months, but I did it! Now I'll post new things randomly as I try them.

#394 - Glow Stick

Happy Halloween, everyone! Tonight, we took our little Spiderman trick-or-treating, but the best part of the day for him was a new thing altogether: a green glow stick. We got the glow stick last weekend in preparation for today, and it's been killing him all week that we couldn't open it sooner. We got all ready to venture out in the neighborhood and got it out at the last minute. (It was like Christmas around here!) As for trick-or-treating, we only did our court and up one side of the next street over before TLG decided he had had enough... though after all the other Halloween festivities this week, I can't blame him. He did help us answer the door for a while, but mostly he wanted to play with the glow stick and eat candy. (Who can blame him?) The photo, left, is from bathtime - we let him take a "spooky bath" in the dark with the glow stick. I didn't know they could go in the water, but it didn't seem to hurt anything and he loved it. We had plenty of trick-or-treaters this year but between the leftover candy and the all the loot TLG collected this week, I do see some sugar rushes in our future!

I connected through another blog that was involved in non-profits. I like the idea of trying 1 new thing a day. Should be interesting to blog about. Check out my blog and see what you think.
