Ah the smell of play-doh

Today I bought a 24 pack of play-doh. It was on sale for $7.99, which really isn't a huge, huge savings since originally it is $9.99. However, it was enough for me to say, "hell yeah, let's splurge" Plus mom felt the need to get high on the doughy smell! Ah, just like Kindergarten.

So we spent an hour or so playing with it. Twisting, cutting, rolling, and shaping it..... but the favorite was poop. Nice. K was playing with the brown and decided this would be a fun game. L, being 4 and 1/2!, didn't totally get it because before long all the colors were poop!

Being 12, almost 13 almost 30, she thought making poop was funny but didn't like that I told her to pick up the play-doh boogers. Ya know the little crumbly pieces that fall off the play-doh and are left on the table. She kept telling me to call it something else. "Okay, sweetie, but poop is okay, right? Just gotta get what is acceptable and what isn't down." She also doesn't like my singing or dancing. Sheesh, I just can't have any fun!

Well gotta go enjoy the last of my play-doh buzz.

Go buy some! Play-doh is not just for kids.... it is for grown-up kids too. :)

And from the sound of your kids, they might just join ya in playing.

Playdoh is the smell of my childhood.

In fact, I think we're going to pull out the playdoh right after nap.
