It's a really good thing I got that dance-fighting video out on Monday, because the rest of this week has been a little nuts.
I got a job, so, during the brief periods of time I'm not being crushed under the weight of a boulder of maternal guilt, I am attempting to re-enter the world of adults.
The kids don't go back to school for another week-and-a-half, so they're hanging with babysitters all day. Every day. At our house. Here's a little formula for you:
Cabin Fever + boredom + anger at Mommy for being gone all day = MASSIVE DESTRUCTION.
Unless you have some Busy Boxes at the ready.
Tuesday, I left out some Cloud/Moon Dough for them, and they had a blast.
Last night, I made 5 lbs. of rainbow rice (pinned here), and I thought we were going to have to sedate the kids to get them to wait to play with it until the babysitter arrived.
Anyway, I knew that my yummy stripes and swirls wouldn't last too long, but I forgot to calculate the mess that moon dough PLUS rainbow rice could make. Silly Mama left the moon dough out near the rice.
|Looks like Funfetti cupcake mix, right?|
The kids seem to have had a good time so far, but when I ask Sarah if she's had a good day, her reply is, "Yes, but no." Sooooo, there's that.
Anyway, I got home today and they were riding like maniacs through the Funfetti mixture on their tricycles.
I'm gonna go hoarse shouting, "On your marks. Get Set. GO!" a billion times a day.
