Tuesday came and went. It was Wednesday afternoon when Little Man I started our batch of Rice Krispies Bars. Nothing too out of the ordinary- Little Man opened the box to scoop out the 5 cups cereal. While the stove was turned OFF he helped dump the marshmallows and butter into the pot.
I melted the the contents of the pot and the boys sampled a small snack. When it came time to smoosh the ingredients down into the pan, Little Man had a melt down. Not sure if it was his particularity about sticky hands or his lack of a Nap. Either way He was completely done, no amount of talking or bribery would convince him to try again. We washed his hands and I finished smashing to bars down tight. It wasn't till Friday that the boys and I enjoyed the spoils of our cooking experience.
"Make a Mess Monday" is a reminder that once a week I abandon my own particularities about being messy. The boys and I try out craft projects that might leave the house torn apart and give us all sticky hands. Hopefully we all experience something new and learn its okay to make messes.
