Our Family Ice Bucket Challenge


As the Ice Bucket Challenge seems to be slowing down, we thought that maybe we'd avoided it...but apparently not!  We got nominated yesterday, so of course we joined in with the challenge and donating to the ALS / MND charity.  It's a good opportunity to teach Ethan about charity and helping people when they are ill, and finding ways to make them feel better.

After helping to pour the water on Daddy and Mommy, Ethan did not want to be left out of the challenge!  We had asked him if he wanted to do it with us, but he said that it was for grown ups.  Then he suddenly changed his mind!  He was running around the garden with his bucket shouting 'thanks for my nomination!' and when we suggested that he might not want to pour cold water on himself, he cried and said that he really wanted to.  So we set it all up, filled up his little bucket with cold (but not icy) water and he went through the whole process of nominating his friends, and then let Daddy pour the water on him!  He didn't cry, he actually sort of laughed and just shook it off himself.  Sometimes he really surprises me!
