Payback in Play-Doh

If your child wants to dig into Play-Doh, and you don’t like Play-Doh, and your husband was the one who got the Play-Doh, and he’s taking a nap, do you tell your child to wake him up? Or grit your teeth and get squishy?

Then I remembered that SwingDaddy was subjected to an endless loop of High School Musical against his will one afternoon when I had to go out and figured it was payback, since I’d introduced HSM to the little dude.

For the record, I ended up having fun too, especially with the spaghetti-making device.

I actually love playdough, but keep forgetting we have it! It doesn't come out nearly often enough.

And about the Pottery Barn towel - thanks, that's really a very nice offer! But I was just looking for something for a gift, so it's not urgent by any stretch.

I am a little too compulsive for playdoh. I get upset when the colors get all mixed.

Play-Doh is entirely too free-form for me. The lack of boundaries does NOT induce creativity, but rather fear. I much prefer coloring books. I can choose colors, but have well-defined boundaries at the same time.

And, mayberry, I'm the same way about the colors mixing. Blech.

Like Mayberry, colors cannot be mixed in this house.

The spaghetti maker is Ashley's fav. too.

In paybacks as with everything else, it's the little things that count. ;)

I also do not like playdoh. When I'm forced to play with it, I try to participate without actually touching it. Weird, but true. I admire you for having fun with it!

Don't forget all those little cans I gave you!

Ok, so I love playdoh, well until someone steps onto it and squishing it into the carpet. Sigh. And the first time you open a can of that stuff, oh, I do love that smell. It brings back wonderful memories. Guess my mom tolerated playdoh too.
