Jiggle This

When Mom was here making me go thrifting (yes it's her fault), I bought a still shrink-wrapped 80's set of alphabet cutters for JELL-O. I had planned on tucking them away to pull out on a rainy day, but Chase spied them as soon as I walked in the door. As you know, the kid is a bit letter obsessed. So for the past two weeks he's been begging me to make JELL-O so he can cut out a C for Chase. That child is relentless when it comes to begging for something he wants. I thought I was stubborn, but I've got nothing on that one.

They had a great time and were chugging away cutting out letters until Andy reminded them that they could eat their creations. After that, there was no convincing Amaya to stop shoving the wiggly little letters in her mouth. Good thing I got sugar free, right?

If you plan on doing a similar activity, might I suggest you not choose the red variety of JELL-O. My fingers were pink for 2 days. No joke.

  2. Ummm I'm not sure who left this or what email I was supposed to read. But thanks for saying I'm creative. :-)
