So while I was sick before break I had to cancel some parent teacher conferences. I rescheduled them all and had one today at noon. And then promptly forgot one at 7 p.m. at the library. Nice, right? Sigh.
On the other note, I found this cool stuff at Target in Decatur the other day. It's called Squishy Baff (for ages 5 and up). It's not actually helpful in the bath arena as a cleaning method. But say you want to fold and put away some laundry within earshot of your kindergartener... you magically mix this stuff up and throw them in with some plastic play figures and a bucket and shovel and they're happy with the sensory activity for a LONG, LONG time. Basically, you pour the stuff in and it turns into a gel (kind of like the gel in a baby's disposable diaper). Then when you're done with it you pour in table salt and it chemically converts the goo back into liquid water. It's a bit like making gak with cornstarch and water. Except this definitely turns into a solid and then converts back to a liquid.
X-man wore goggles because he was afraid he'd mess up and get it in his eyes and it would suck the moisture from them. He's never going to lack for imagination. :-)
