  • Will saying “yes” to this situation hurt or bother anyone? No!
  • Can the child learn anything from the situation?
    Yes, what a great science experiment!
  • Does it really (really) matter one way or another? Nope!

    My boys did the same thing a few weeks ago. My back patio still has a rainbow of chalk all over it:)

    Your aliens are adorable! It’s hard to say yes sometimes. I have to remind myself sometimes that mess is OK and it’s also OK if I get messy too! Much more fun that way. I can’t wait until it is a little warmer her in Australia so we can take the mess outside more often!
