The day had already been a long one.
What I wanted most from the evening was to put my feet up and watch a movie, but my three-year-old pleaded from the backseat,
“Can we play outside for a little while, Mama?”
The weather here is perfect, and I couldn’t think of any good reason to say no. So I caught his eyes in the rear view mirror and said, “Sure.”
I told him there was a special project we needed to work on called Cloud Dough, and asked him if he would like to help?
The response was a beaming grin and an enthusiastic, “YES!”
