{Edible} 5 minute PLAY DOUGH


It's October. Hunting season. I am having a bit of trouble adjusting to no husband around to help with the kids in the evening. I keep them entertained all day and all night until bed. This mama is tired. I am going to show you a 5 minute recipe for soft play dough that is non toxic and non dangerous if eaten!! It really is so quick and you can have your kids help you stir the ingredients and choose the color. Then you can dump it on the counter for them to play, and you can go have a cup of hot cocoa and sit in quiet "mommy time out" for a few minutes... Do you love me yet? You will!

I am Mother.

In my home,
I am baker. I am thrifter. I am saver. I am learner. I am teacher. I am lover. I am reader. I am Doctor. I am washer. I am folder. I am listener. I am worrier. I am organizer. I am table setter. I am crafter. I am dreamer. I am answerer. I am caretaker. I am comforter. I am friend. I am groomer. I am dragon(in more ways than one). I am writer. I am Mother.
 I am Emily.
A few months ago I asked a friend to take pictures of me at work. Someday when my bear cubs grow up they will ask "Mom, what is your job?" I figure since a picture says a thousand words, why not show them.
