On Todays Episode of "What Was I Thinking?"
(Cue theme song to any 60's family show) I decide it would be fun to pull out the cookie cutters and let the kids play with cookie dough...really I could stop here and and you could imagine the mess involved, but I will go on! So after their bath ("after"the second "What was I thinking? moment") which flooded the bathroom with a solid 1/2 inch of water. I made some ginger snap dough, lined the table with wax paper and sprinkled on flour. They each got a small mound of dough and a few shapes. Immediately they began laughing, having a great time, and getting straight to work. That would be about when Elijah decided to jump up from his seat to fetch the rolling pin, taking with him his wax paper, flour, and tiny pieces of dough. When he walked back to his spot and saw the demise of his dough he began rubbing it into the chair...the table...the carpet...and his freshly bathed body, all while singing "clean up clean up"! Meanwhile Addalene finally had fallen asleep and I was trying to lay her down without waking her up, so he kept at it. Lucky for him, it was an accident, I may have come unglued otherwise!
