Julia was gone most of the day yesterday for rehearsal for her dance recital, so the little girls and I made slime – a.k.a. Gak, a.k.a. the stuff Julia once got stuck on our friend’s vaulted ceiling. (Warning: this stuff sticks to ceilings.)
You guys, this stuff is so fun and not as messy as you’d think. And Bee and Lucy really tried to wreck things with it. Lucy stuck it all over her shirt and on the rug. Bee put hers on the cat and over the return air grate. It all cleaned up! Just know this fact about slime: the longer it sits on a surface, the more it sticks to it.
Julia and I made this stuff years ago with her playgroup friends. We’d found the recipe in my Moms’ Lifesavers: Tips to Help Make Life Easier for New Mothers book. You can find the same one with cool pictures at Lil’ Luna.
She still had to make her own when she got home.
After dinner, Dave made a fire he was immensely proud of, because this is what men do.
“I am man!”
“I make FIRE!”
We roasted marshmallows.
And went to bed very late and sticky.
