Lately I’ve been inching closer to the illusion that I am Suzy Homemaker (minus the perfectly coifed hair, homemade meals that taste good and super cute apron).
I’ve been creating all kinds of crafts and activities for the kids at home and every time they love one I think
this is blogging gold maybe I really could be a craft blogger.
Oh and I also had this genius idea for bath paint that the kids absolutely loved.
This morning I put on my over-confident crafty pants and told the kids we could do Mommy’s Magic Bath Paint again but I was going to make it even better!!!
I had new plans, the paint would be brighter, there would be a new color, we would laugh and they would make a mess and I wouldn’t even care because it all washes away, just. like. that.
But it did not wash away just. like. that. It dyed four towels, two socks and three children, purple.
Instead of a bath full of happiness I ended up with a tub full of Smurfs crying because the water was too cold as I gave them bath number three in an attempt to turn them back to their natural color.
And just like that my career as a craft blogger that never even began is already over. Not only do I have a hard time following directions I have a hard time following my OWN directions which pretty much seals the deal that I will just stick to writing
and coloring books
but nothing, nothing else, where I substitute food coloring gel for regular food coloring to get richer colors and impress my children who are pretty much impressed with anything as long as it doesn’t involve vegetables or bedtime.
Just in case you think I’m remotely credible at this point I’m sharing my autism wisdom at Childswork this week and would love to hear your thoughts on how your goals for your children change as they get older.
