I put the timer on for an hour, which is twice as long as the instructions instruct. I treated myself as well, which Topsy found highly amusing. Diva did too, as apparantly my eyebrows were half -in and half -out of the cling wrap, and therefore tugged up into a comical expression. I never checked to see how funny I looked, and you won't be able to either. Ha! =)
Well! 10 seconds later it was pandemonium! Screaming kids, slippery naked bodies running in a panic around the house.
"Help, Mummy! Help.! It stings!"
What was going on?
It so happens that the conditioner I had bought specially turned out to be a shampoo /conditioner mix! Oucchhy! Stinging eyes!!
So it was not my finest moment as a mother.
There were several muttered "Thanks a lot, Mom"s ,when the tumult had died down.
The kids all still love this game, but often Spindles will just read in the living room while we play.
Anyways Topsy and I were going around seeking out the hiders. We found Roly first, then Diva. "Peekaboo, peekaboo', etc.
'Spindles isn't playing," Roly said after we nosed out Diva. "He's reading."
Well , earlier, Spindles had taken possesion of the finished cling wrap tube (yes we went through a lot!) and was using it for a sword. I figured he has enough play weaponry and instead decided Roly should put it in the mouse cage as a tunnel.
"Spindles!" I called. "Get the tube for Roly please."
"OK", said a clearly crestfallen Spindles emerging in defeat from his hiding place under the sink. !!!!!
I would never have looked for him there either!!
