Today started off like any other day in the" B" household. As I sat on the porch drinking my morning coffee, I ran through the things I'd like to accomplish. I scoped out the perfect place to plant my Peredovik sunflowers, I found a recipe for sidewalk puff paint I thought the kids would like to try, and I'd even throw in doing a few loads of laundry. What can I say, I dream big. The sun is shining bright and I'm ready to get down to the business of planting until I hear Levi, who is 8 and Autistic, screaming, "big sexy in the house" then switching to stripping off his shirt and singing, "I'm too sexy for my shirt." Where this boy gets these things from I may never know. The next thing I know I'm under attack with water warfare. That escalated quickly! I'm running around the yard dripping wet, trying to quiet him, and catching the flying shirt. Next came filling up the splash pool. It's always Levi that seems to wreak havoc. All of a sudden I see feet flying into the air as the force of the water somersaults him right out into the yard. My thoughts were I bet he doesn't lean over the side anymore....wrong. After a few bruises and a little blood later it was time to get dried off. Boys will be boys. Onto discussing dinner plans. Kristen talks about how she'd like some popeyes. I explain to her that popeyes isn't open yet. She says, "no not that popeyes, the popeyes that are like mini pies with gravy and veggies in them." Pot Pies? She says, "yeah that. I thought they were called popeyes." Oh my! My sunflowers didn't get planted, the sidewalk paint didn't get made,and we had leftovers for dinner. 1 load of laundry did make it to the washer, but not to the dryer yet. But you know what, that's ok. We don't always have to have it together to make lifelong memories. The bloopers in life is what creates those cherished moments. Puff Sidewalk Paint 1 cup flour 1 cup water 1 tablespoon dish soap-just about any dish soap will work 5-10 drops of food coloring or washable paint In a large bowl stir the flour and water together until there are no lumps. Stir in the dish soap to the flour mixture. Add food coloring until colored is achieved. Doesn't store well so use all or toss out what doesn't get used.
