So we love playdough at our house! Ashlyn loves to make cookies, and bugs and any other random creation she can think up. So yesterday I decided to let alysse in on the playdough fun. And needless to say she had a blast! My biggest problem was trying to get her not to eat it. So we are having fun create-n' some playdough magic, and then ashlyn brings out a knife to "cut her cookies with" and alysse goes nuts, and wants a knife too. And yes...i will let my five year old play with knives but alysse i had to think about for a second. I already know...not gonna be listed as mom of the year! So after ten mintues or so of screaming I gave alysse a plastic knife to cut with...and she was happy as can be. Until she figured out ashlyn's was better so i gave her the real butter knife for like two seconds and she was cutting up a storm. It sometimes amazes me how much the second child picks up. So all in all our playdough playdate was a success and the girls played so cute together. Ashlyn made cookies and snails... and alysse... welll...she made a mess!
