Looks like Mom finally made her kids some play dough.**
As I was making the play dough, Finn and Lucy couldn't resist joining in and we had ourselves a great time, so there may be benefits to waiting until your kids are teens to make play dough. We were laughing and reminiscing, when Lucy recalled Roz Chast's cartoon, Bad Mom Trading Cards.

Deborah Z. and I have lots to talk about.
** Truth be told, I wasn't making it for Finn and Lucy. But I promised to bring back whatever was left over. The other nice thing about waiting until your children are teens to make play dough is that they can actually understand that explanation and will wait patiently for it to happen. Why does anyone ever make play dough for little kids?? It clearly makes the most sense to wait until they are good and ready.***
*** Note to self: homemade play dough may be a good going-away present when they leave for college.
