The other night I asked Coen and Lucy if they wanted to do the dishes with me. They both grabbed stools and ran to the sink. While no dish cleaning actually happened, they had a wonderful time creating this potion:
It is leftover soup from dinner, leftover salad from dinner, soap, tea, cotton balls, coffee grounds, strawberry tops, milk from our breakfast cereal...among other things. Also, they poured in the ice cubes from Tad's drink. Tad is sick with some kind of bug and so the children claimed that the potion was not only "dusgusting" but also "poison" with Daddy's germs.
Here are my two little concocters:
They said they were leaving it out for Clark (who is a bad guy they invented) and asked me not to dump it out overnight. Both of them were amazed that the potion, gross as it was, actually smelled really good and were fairly certain they could get into the Guiness Book of Records for the best smelling gross potion.
I have no doubt they could.
