I wasn't going to do it. I was dead-set against it!
But the minute Rowan looked up at me with his big blue eyes and said, “I just know that Santa will bring it for me,” I caved.
What can I say? He’s 4 years old, and I don’t know how long he’ll believe. So I decided that the magic was worth the mess.
And it totally was.
“Oh. Man.” he said when he caught his first glimpse of it. “I guess Santa really does bring you what you ask for at Christmas!”
Like I said, worth it.
And the mess wasn't so bad. Although Rowan calls it a "water-shooting race track," it's actually more like a vehicle-shooting car wash....or something like that.
Anyhoo, we set it up on a towel, and the cleanup was a breeze.
All the boys thought it was pretty cool.
And so did I.
