    Default Introduced DS#1 to dry ice tonight

    ... had a couple of bags of it left over from a Lite & Easy delivery, so chucked it in a bowl of water in the kitchen. He was very impressed, and even paid attention to my stern admonitions against touching the ice itself.

    "Very very hot daddy!"

    "No, it's very cold. See, feel the outside of the bowl."

    "Wow! Cold!"

    "Yeah, but it'll still burn you."

    Looking forwards to having all sorts of fun with him (& DS#2) as they get older.

    On the agenda is fire suppression: learning how to use fire blankets, extinguishers etc. in a safe environment (in other words, I set stuff on fire in the back garden and they put it out). That'll have to wait a year or two though.

    Being a single mum of 1 dd and 1 ds, i'm always trying to think outside my own square so that ds gets a bit more boy stuff. Would love to hear other 'dad type' activities that I could have a go at.
