Ever the Crafty Girl....

....and ever the girl with hopes that the children WON'T tear up her house today (those are all made in vain, I'll have you know!), I got a book on Sensory Activities for two year-olds. Did you know that if you take some plain ol' Elmer's glue and some liquid starch (like Grandma used to use for Grandpa's workshirts, but we never use that shit in my house....), that you can make your own silly putty or gak (for those children of the eighties)? The kids liked it and were enamoured with it for about ten minutes. So if you feel yourself up for a challenge, go try it. Your kids will think you're gross.

.....and being the bad bad friend that I am, I didn't give the shout-out that poor Judy deserves for interrupting the hell that is sometimes my life to bring me Steak 'n Shake. It was soooo nice to have another adult to witness in person the craziness that is mac-n-cheese day! I hope that it all came off your boots, Judy! *winks*

....It's those brief interruptions with friends. The two-or-three-hour phone calls, the surprise lunches, and such that totally make my life worthwhile sometimes. Oh, yeah....and those rare occasions when the kids are good and treat me like the queen I am. Those, too.

My favorite activity is to stick a little of that goo under your nose and then go ask a kid for a kiss. Someone once told me that was sooo disgusting. I guess they have never been stuck in a house all day with kids'. You've gotta make your own entertainment sometimes.

Also, no shout outs needed for me. If people know I do nice things for you, they'll all start to expect stuff like lunch delivery from me.
