Sometimes I'd like to ask God why He allows poverty, famine and injustice when He could do something about it. But I'm afraid God might ask me the same question.

My worst Mommy idea so far...

I am always coming up with great "ideas" 
 or so I think... Day 1 of this project I realized that I made a big mistake.  The kids and I LOVE a good project.  So during the snowy wet week last week, I came up with this one.  I had this grandios idea of making the perfect paper mache' globe and teaching the kids about the different continents and cutting out different animals and landmarks for each different one. You know, like panda bears in Asia, zebras and tigers in Africa, US flag on North America..  All that great stuff. You can see what we ended up with.. It wasn't even round... What a HUGE mess, what a huge pain.  If I didn't like y'all I would tell you to go here and follow these instructions and a week later, after layer upon layer of sticky messy nasty pasty newspaper shreds all over your house,  you too could have a lumpy bumpy misshapen easter egg pinata.  I know you want one.  But what ever you do don't go here.  You will regret it, I promise.  Even my kids say they NEVER want to make a pinata again...

Too funny. I did this with my 2 year old class a few years back, yeah they never quite got finished or turned out the way they were supposed to. Never again! Kids did have fun though, but gosh what a MESS! I thought my boss was going to kill me. LOL
