I apologize in advance for the negativeness of this post...

Okay, so this has to be fast because I'm supposed to be on the treadmill. I just have to get something off my chest...


I know I've mentioned that before, and if I had more time, I'd find it and link to it, but I don't, so just trust me.

I had just recently begun to think that the Play*Doh was actually okay. It's provided some quiet entertainment for Annie this school year, while her sister is at school, and her brother is napping. No, I don't let Austin play with it yet. Yes, I know it's good for his motor development or something like that. But you and I both know what he would do with it. He would eat it. And even I draw the line at Play*Doh for lunch. Anyway, like I said, Annie does okay with the stuff. She's not too messy with it. She tends to get out just a tub or two and that's about it. So the Play*Doh with just Annie, not too bad.


Today the girls BOTH wanted to play with it. Naively I thought, "Well SURE! Why not!"

People. I just walked into the room where they were, and I swear....the Play*Doh EXPLODED. Along with some paint that they found in the Play*Doh box. WHICH I have no idea where THAT came from! I seriously don't know how two girls made that big of a mess is that short of a time.

So today, my hate for the Play*Doh came rushing back. I'm sorry, I know it's not nice to hate. And I realize some of you love the Play*Doh, and are shocked that someone as nice as me could harbor such resentment towards something so innocent.

But you'd understand if you could see the mess.

Now I need to go do some running to work out the rage.

Your not alone in your hate for Play Doh...maybe we should start a new Facebook group for Moms who hate Play Doh ;-)

That makes me laugh. Loulabelle just got a 24 pack yesterday for her bday, of which I bought. :)

It does make me crazy sometimes, but it is one of the rare things that Z and L like to do together so that weighs the negative for me. We will see what happens when Wingman starts to fling it around. I may just join that FB group then!

Sign me up for that FB hate group, man! I despise the stuff! My brother gave my kids a 10 pack for Christmas last year and I threw up in my mouth a little.

Ugh. I totally feel your pain. Did you get a pic of the war zone to post??????

I must be on my own here...i love the playdoh.

Of course they only play it at the farm table on the wood floor or at the art table in the garage. So maybe that is why it is such an easy clean up.

Hope the running helped!

Yeah. I don't hate it, but it's not my fave. That said, I do hate the mess. Not as much as saltine crackers. (Guess what was on my floors last night?)

...and she was runnnnning. :)
