I've been calling people on the phone way more than my usual phone-phobic ways. But Becca has learned that if she pretends she's going to throw up I will hang up immediately. Then, she'll look at me and just say, sweet as pie, "Will you play ponies with me?"
To keep from going too stir crazy, here is a cool craft that we've been into lately. Crayon melts.
You have to have one of these nifty food warmer things. Thanks to John's mom, Jo Anne, we have two of them (from the 1970s in Harvest Gold) and I use them every Thanksgiving. We now have another cool use for them.
You cover it with foil, then allow kids to draw on it with crayons. The crayons melt and get all goopy. It is very cool. Then the kid puts on an oven mitt, lays a piece of paper of the drawing and rubs the back of the paper, transferring the melted crayon drawing on to the paper. Then, wipe the foil clean with a wet paper towel and start over. It is so fun!
Okay. So that took 5 minutes. Now what do we do?
